LONDON (AP) — British police say a man who bought a copy of "Grand Theft Auto V" when it went on sale at midnight was attacked and robbed of the game on his way home.

The Metropolitan Police says the 23-year-old man, who has not been named, was attacked near a supermarket in north London early Tuesday. He was hit with a brick, stabbed and stripped of his mobile phone, watch and his copy of the game.

Police say the victim is in a stable condition in a hospital.

No arrests have been made.

British game-players lined up outside stores to get their hands on the latest installment in the mayhem-filled adventure game series, which went on sale Tuesday.
