WATCH: San Jose laptop theft caught on camera

SAN JOSE (KRON) - A man is asking for help after his laptop was swiped from right under his nose in a San Jose coffee shop.

Huy Nguyen was working on his laptop inside Grind Coffee House located at 2050 Concourse Dr. when it happened Thursday afternoon.

Surveillance video shows a man walk in and and head straight past Nguyen, perhaps to the bathroom.

When he comes out, he snatches the laptop from behind and runs out of the shop.

Nguyen reacts immediately, jumping from his seat to chase after the thief, but he got into a running car and the driver took off.

The car is described as a black Cadillac with paper plates.

Nguyen posted this to Facebook:

"Hey folks, my laptop was just stolen from me as I was working from it at a coffee shop in San Jose (Grind Coffee House). If you can ID this person or know of any information - please send it my way," Nguyen wrote on Facebook.
