You’ve probably heard this before but here’s a reminder: when a dangerous person tries to get your cash and valuables (and just your cash and valuables, if they’re trying to kidnap you it’s a different case), it may not be intuitive to our myopic brains but the rule is always to let them.
Attempts to cling onto your belongings will risk a knife in between your ribs, and your valuables pried from you anyway.
And you know what, the same goes for snatch theft, especially ones aided by motorcycles, except instead of stab wounds, you’ll get a face full of asphalt.
Snatch Theft in Malaysia
Lately, one such case happened in Muar, Johor and it was caught on a CCTV camera.
CCTV video taken at Jalan Pesta in Muar, Johor, captured the moment where a women handbag got snatched by a snatch thief on a motorcycle, which then dragged her along a good few meters away.
