(Newser)

A California man is dead after chasing down a thief who snatched his laptop from a Starbucks on New Year’s Eve. The unidentified man was working from the Starbucks in an east Oakland neighborhood around 11:30am when someone grabbed his computer and ran. A woman seated near the victim saw him chase the suspect into a black SUV waiting in the street. “He was really brave,” performing a “superman-type dive” into the SUV, the woman tells KGO. But “there was a struggle and I think they pushed him out and then he got dragged.”


Another witness had a slightly different take: that the man’s head struck a parked car after he grabbed onto a door handle of the fleeing vehicle, reportedly driven by a masked man, per KGO. “He was bleeding only from the head. His face was purple and blue,” says the owner of an adjacent flower shop, per CNN, which reports the victim, initially in critical condition, later died at a hospital. Police announced the arrests of two suspects on Wednesday. “No further information will be released at this time. The investigation continues,” a statement reads. (Read more California stories.)
