    Foreign pickpockets strike on bus: They cut pants to steal money from wallet

    [​IMG]

    STOMPer Kim Soon was a victim of a pickpocketing incident on Friday morning. He said a foreign commuter pretended to sleep beside him on the bus but later the STOMPer found his pants had been cut and money stolen from his wallet.

    Said the STOMPer:

    "This incident happened to me on Friday, around 9.40am.

    "Two men, who looked like they are from northern China, boarded bus 62 around Aljunied Road. Both are big-sized, about 1.75m in height.

    "They look in their 40s, with one sporting a shaved head and carrying a black sling bag. He sat beside me on the bus.

    "I did not feel them cutting my pants, but when the guy leaned against me to sleep, I could feel some body contact.

    "However, I was preoccupied with my thoughts and I was listening to music.

    "I only realised my pants had been cut and my money taken after they alighted from the bus.

    "As the bus is a loop service, they boarded the bus from the bus stop opposite about 20 minutes later, at 10.10am.

    "I recognised them and enlisted the help of the bus driver to close the doors so they would be unable to escape, but they got away before the doors closed.

    "I lodged a police report, but the bus does not have a CCTV camera installed as it is one of the older buses."


    The STOMPer described in an email:

    "Beware that there is a group of pickpocket crooks from China targeting passengers of single deck buses.

    "They will sit beside a passenger, whose wallet is placed at the back of the pants.

    "Then, they will lean with their shoulder agaist the seat and their back facing the targeted passenger.

    "While pretending to be asleep, these crooks will start using sharp object to cut the pants of the passenger and take the cash out from the wallet.

    "The whole process is done without taking out the wallet.

    "Thus, the passenger will not be aware that his valuables are being stolen! "Once the crooks get the cash, they will alight the bus immediately.

    "These crooks should be operating in pair and they speak in China accents.

    "One is doing the stealing and another one is sitting somewhere in the bus as a watchdog.

    "Be very careful and alert when someone is sitting beside you with his back facing you in a bus!"

    This MO is nothing new. The Indons struck in the early 90s. Usually along Orchard Rd.

    What great surgical skills! And not a drop of blood. Heaven be praised. Are the surgeons from China the most highly skilled in the world?

    When we were in Bangkok for 4 days in January, our Tour Guide told us to be careful while shopping because Filipino gangs prowled the main shopping street, using razor blades to pickpocket Tourists. Nothing happen to us while we were there, maybe because we kept looking in all directions for suspicious looking people.

    Another fake stomp or not? How can the guy cut yr pants with his back facing you? And take money out of wallet without taking out the wallet from pocket?
