Bag-Snatching like a Pro (Female Bag Snatcher VIDEO)

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

That would be about 8 million people in HCMC.
And half the population of PP.

A while back I was walking with the Mrs and two kids along the foot path along Norodom and some fuckwit on a moto tooted us for being in his way. Times I wish I had a baseball bat...

Remember the time when the riverside used to be like that. Thankfully that's been cleaned up (most of the time).

One day you guys will hear the story of how I caught a thief... One day... The snatchings are downright rampant now. I've never been a target despite always carrying a bag. I think women are the biggest targets, as well as anyone holding a phone out. It must take guts to do it though (the first time anyways). I've heard they often have a second bike behind them that acts as a protector in case they get chased (blocking them off/etc).

It hasn't happened yet, so don't hold your breath. It's more of a dream of mine.

Ha, I'm surprised that the bong thoms don't shoot at them for riding along their carpark.

It was cleaned up for a while, like a couple of years back, but there are plenty of motorbikes piling up and down it these days.
