If I were in your position, I would have gone to a friend or to the library to borrow a computer for five minutes. I would have sent a chat/email to the employer saying, "Sorry for the inconvenience but my laptop has been stolen and my communication will be somewhat delayed." I would have informed them what steps I was taking to complete the work and offer a new deadline, while apologizing for the inconvenience.
The freelancer employer needs to hear from you just as a regular full-time employer does! If you faced an obstacle in an office job, you would talk to your employer about it. I hope your laptop is never stolen again, but if it is, do everything within your power to get to a computer and check in with your Freelancer employers.
