Wanted: Who stole my laptop at Starbucks yesterday morning?

Yesterday, in the span of 45 seconds, a thief swiped my laptop in a Lima Starbucks. After some investigative work, I have a video here (please watch it) identifying a potential witness to the robbery. Most unfortunately, the establishment itself does not have a surveillance camera inside or outside to record these thieves in action, but it is my hope that Starbucks will consider to install these cameras to prevent others from loosing valuable effects while enjoying a cup of coffee in a nice environment among friends and family. Be aware that robberies like this one happen every day, and not only in Lima, so take good care of your personal belongings and do not trust anyone to look after your things. There are distractions every minute, and some which are planned specifically to rob you.
