0725_maddox_jolie_pitt_ipad_mainBrad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's son fell victim to everyone's biggest fear -- the dreaded iPad heist -- after a man allegedly broke into the family's SUV and jacked not one, but TWO of the high-priced Apple tablets.

Sources on the scene tell TMZ, 11-year-old Maddox Jolie-Pitt, some friends, and a family bodyguard went to Hollywood Sports Paintball Park in Bellflower, CA, last weekend ... and while Maddox was playing inside, some jackass jimmied their SUV door and snatched the iPads and a cell phone.

But before the guy could make a clean getaway ... we're told someone spotted him in the act, and alerted security guards -- who nabbed him and then called police.

Our sources say the man was arrested, and the stolen items were returned.

A rep for the paintball park tells us, he felt so bad about the whole thing ... he hooked Maddox and his bodyguard up with a bunch of free food and other stuff.

Wow! Close call. Otherwise their insurance company would have had to pay them for new ones, and there goes our insurance rates. I'd have thought the Pax would have had adequate money to purchase "food and stuff" on his own. Sorry to hear about the hard times.

Getting your stuff stolen isn't fun. Regardless of whether you're rich or poor, no one should have the right to steal your things.

That poor, unfortunate family.. They had a couple of Ipads in the back of their SUV, and they poor traumatized Maddox, who is usually living in the lap of luxury, had to witness a robbery? Don't worry Maddox, mommy and daddy will buy you 3 more Ipads for you! Not even my 20yo son has his own Ipad. Must be tough!!!!!

"A rep for the paintball park tells us, he felt so bad about the whole thing ... he hooked Maddox and his bodyguard up with a bunch of free food and other stuff."
Why not "hook" a few children and their families that may not have the funds to have a day of fun and meals.
Stealing from a kid is wrong but if any other child was to leave and item like that in a car and it was stolen , I don't see anyone caring one single bit, no matter how much money you have, when you leave something of value in a car, there is a good chance it may be stolen.
Such a good message, a child leaves expensive electronics in a car, the car gets broken into, and the child is rewarded with free things (a child whose parents are worth millions). This makes no sense to me, especially when you are trying to go all over the world trying to save 3rd world countries.
