A friend email me saying his housing area in USJ for past week, has frequent snatch thieves. Happened near her house, right in front of her neighbour house. Around 6pm (yeah, still bright day light), the lady was coming out from the car, opening her boot with her handbag on her hand, the snatch thieves on motorbike grab her bag & cut it off with a knife. So don't think you are safe when you reached home. Stay alert & observe your surrounding before getting down from the car. When you try to open the gate, that might be the time when the snatch thieves strike. Consider yourself lucky if you just lost your handbag. What if you get hurt ?! Which will you prefer ? Lost your valuable or get hurt or avoid both by being safe & stay alert ?
Another case happened at the pedestrian bridge near Summit Hotel. The snatch thief was waiting at the bridge itself. Omg!
Cost of living are getting higher. When certain level of income group are not able to keep up with the rising costs of goods & services, they will resort to this kind of criminal activites.
Be safe when you are out there !!!
