A video of a pair of cunning thieves has reminded Chinese netizens to always pay attention to their belongings.
In the video, which was filmed by a car’s dashboard camera in Beijing’s central business district, a man is seen hopping off the back of a scooter, running up behind an unsuspecting woman riding her bike, and then pilfering her purse. Afterward, the thief runs back to the scooter, hops on and zooms away.
While the incident occurred in broad daylight, it doesn’t seem like the woman had any clue what had just happened. During the robbery, two other scooters can be seen passing by, apparently without a care.
