Yet another road-side snatch thief has been caught in the act by a driver and his dash-cam, this time in Taiping, yesterday (July 1st, 2015). This video was first spotted on the Malaysian Crime Awareness Campaign FB page.

An elderly lady, walking along a street with a child alongside her is tailed by the thief for a few moments, who then notices an opportunity, and strikes.

As he sprints way, a gentleman driving behind captures the whole event on his dash-cam, and attempts to pursue the thief, who then makes off into an alley where the car cannot follow.

This is yet another reminder of the types of crimes Malaysians face when on the road, be it in a car, or simply walking along a street.

Please be careful, folks.
