Las Vegas teen run over by SUV after refusing to surrender iPad he got for birthday to thieves


LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas police are searching for two thieves accused of running over a teenage boy with their SUV after he refused give up his iPad to them.

Ivan Arenas told the Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://bit.ly/15Uh5RP) that he bought the iPad for his oldest son, Marcos, less than two months ago.

The father says the family has never had a lot and his 15-year-old son knew the value of everything he had.

But police say the Bonanza High School student's refusal to surrender his iPad to the thieves cost him his life Thursday and serves as a lesson for owners of such devices.

Ivan Arenas says he never imagined the iPad would lead to his son's death and for him to lose his life over it is "just not fair."
