Posted Jul 21, 2012

TeamCokemon has uploaded a video of a guy that attempted to steal the Olympic torch.   Police have arrested the teenager on Friday after he tried to grab the Olympic torch.  The torch was being delivered on the day that it was supposed arrive in London.

Anna Skora, 23, can be seen running with the torch when a 17-year-old man attempted to take the torch from her near the St. John’s Catholic Primary School on the A226 in Gravesend.

Security around the torch has been stepped up as it gets passed on across an 8,000 mile relay around Great Britain.  The security force is a 70-strong person team.  Last week a 27-year-old man from Oxfordshire was charged after streaking during the Olympic Torch relay.
