Snatch Theft


I used to cycle before I got married. I cycled from my rented place to my bf's place to borrow his father's car to get to school.

After school, I returned the car and cycled back to my place. No choice as I had no car and my bf had to work.

It was a routine everyday during school days. I usually cycled at regular hours and similar routes.

The route that I took was rather quiet. One day, as I was cycling, suddenly I heard a motorbike coming my way and someone called out:

Hello...

I turned my head but someone held my bicycle, pushed my head to the left and for a short moment, they were gone!

I was shocked! Not knowing how to shout..Just saw the motorbikers riding very fast away.

Then I realised that my gold necklace which was given by my mum was gone.

I dared not relate the incident to my bf. Just told my landlady about it.

From that day onwards, I used the long way instead of the short cuts.

  3. Same experience happened to me this year. I was on my way back to my house from tuition. An indian guy stopped in front of me. I knew something bad going to happen. Keep running. Luckily I could run faster than him.

  8. Hi Wenn, sorry hear you lost that necklace.
    I have been getting lots of emails of friends, even relatives being mugged broad daylight, in the middle of the street too.
    And nobody came to help.

    A friend's wife was robbed by 2 fellows on the bike as she parked her car to unlock her gate. A knife at her throat. Her handbag everything inside gone.

    From what I read the cops unable to do anything as these crooks disappear very fast.
    You take care, Wenn. Be aware always. Lee.
