Qiu stopped in front of the display stand and reached over the counter to put her hand on the phone, as seen on store surveillance tape. She then gave the gadget a closer look and began to gnaw on the security cable that was there to protect it.
She bit off the cable completely, put the phone in her bag, and walked out of the store. Qiu attempted to bite the cord off while pretending to browse the phone like a regular user to avoid drawing attention to herself.
According to the store manager, the report also states that an alarm was activated during the incident. However, the employees took no action because they saw nothing peculiar when they approached the woman.
The store employees noticed the missing phone and the chewed-off cord when the woman left the store carrying the iPhone in her bag. After calling the police, the woman was apprehended 30 minutes after the crime was committed.
