Just to highlight to everyone the need to be cautious even within shopping complex!

A neighbour has his handphone snatch inside a shopping complex near where I live. The culprits were light-skinned couple (man & woman), around 30 plus, neatly dressed.

Modus operandi was they approached him whilst he was on the phone asking for certain directions and snatch it away and run, catching him unaware.

Nowadays, it is not only the streets that are not safe, even, inside shopping complex, you need to be careful with your possessions! :mad:

It was not a first hand experience and to follow what most newspapers do, don't name the race nor the place but one should be able to make an accurate guess from the clues provided. :)

As for the type and model, didn't think it was important and didn't ask - it was a neighbour and they are entitled to their privacy if they don't intend to volunteer the info. A snatch is still a snatch, irrespective of the value that was snatched. All of us just need to be careful and be more aware of our surroundings when we are out of the house.

few months back this happen in one of the famous hyper market in Puchong opposite the Bandar Puteri, Puchong. Two mild dark skin guys snatch a aunty handbag while she was about to pay for her things near the counter. The security guards fail to stop them, they are just too quick n pro! :(

I have actually seen a modified, windows heavily tinted car driving slowly around the car-park of this hyper market. looked very suspicious.
