Robbed in my car of laptop

Hi there.
My car was parked in Church Street and I opened it with the remote. I opened the back door (on drivers side) and placed the hp laptop on the floor behind the drivers seat.
After getting in behind the steering, and closing my door, a stranger suddenly opened the passanger door next to me and climbed into the car.
I grabbed him by the collar, pushing back towards the door and told him to get out. He said "I just want to talk to you my friend".
Meanwhile his accomplish opened the back door and removed the laptop. A few secconds later the man in front started laughing and got out of the car, and closed the door behind him.
I noticed on the dashboard lights that one door was still open. The thief left the back door open slightly as to not make a noise.
This all happened in less than a minute I think and needless to say, my laptop is gone.
TIP: When your car unlocks all 5 doors with the remote. Lock it again immediately after opening the drivers door and before you get in. In this way no one else can sneak into another door. (I bought the Hyundai just 4 days prior to the robbery and learned an expensive lesson)
