PHUKET: Phuket City Police are urging women to be extra cautious when walking along the street as attacks by young snatch bandits are increasing – and proving hard to catch.
Duty Officer Capt Kittiphum Tinthalang told the Phuket Gazette today that bag snatching attacks are becoming more common.
“Nowadays, we get reports of bag snatching all the time,” he said.
The culprits are also hard to track down, he added.
“Descriptions of the attackers are often scarce in detail because the attacks usually happen so quickly,” Capt Kittiphum said.
