A general view of the inside of a new Apple store in Chicago, Illinois, U.S., October 19, 2017.

Apple Store employees make no attempt to stop them, though another customer did. The four hooded robbers grabbed 26 items worth $27,000 in just seconds this past Saturday. Another pair can be seen working swiftly to yank out the iPhones as terrified shoppers look for cover.

The video showed two of the four thieves dashing past a group of teenage girls as they ran for the door with their arms filled with stolen goods.

One customer tried to block the exit, but was knocked down by one of the robbers.
