A teenager who pilfered a tablet on a Muni bus Wednesday morning was apprehended following a foot chase, according to reports.

The morning commute for a 28-year old woman using a tablet -- whether it was an iPad or other brand is not immediately known -- was interrupted at 7:15 a.m. when a teenager "robbed her device," the San Francisco Examiner reported.

Tablet in hand, the 17-year old suspect attempted to make his escape from the 44 O'Shaughnessy bus when police arrived. He "was caught after a foot chase with a cop," the newspaper reported.

The tablet is back in safe hands.
