(Newser) – A robber who swiped a family's laptop and iPhone in England this week has returned to haunt them—on Facebook, the Telegraph reports. "I have the laptop, phones OK but a bit scratched itll do," the thief wrote after hacking into the Facebook page of Victoria Richardson, whose West Sussex home was robbed on Thursday. "TV was rubbish so I left it ... regards your nighttime burglar."

"It felt like they were rubbing my nose in it," Richardson said. "They have been in your physical space, and then they are in your online space." Her purse, cash, credit cards, and Nintendo console were also stolen, but the thief seemed to like her laptop best: "now to the porn shop I gooo, thankyou Toshiba is my favourite make."
