(CNET) It's a natural instinct to resist if someone tries to steal something out of your hand.

As the Las Vegas Sun reports, Marcos Vincente Arenas was walking down the street, holding an iPad.

Police say an SUV pulled up alongside him. A man allegedly got out of the passenger seat and tried to wrest the iPad from Arenas.
The teen wouldn't let go of the device, so, investigators say, he was dragged along by the alleged thief toward the vehicle.
