Smash-and-snatch thief caught on video

The Star today carries an article of a smash-and-snatch theft caught on a car-video. It is shocking to see how it was done so speedily and without fuss. This incident happened in Section 16, Petaling Jaya. The footage shows two men on a motorcycle approaching the car at a traffic light junction. Within seconds, the pillion rider had smashed the passenger window, grabbed the driver's bag and sped off. Below is the 22-sec video which has been viewed more than 337k times. Take a look.


  1. terrible!! i hate snatch thieves.. the next thing i hope for them is they being run over by car!!!

  2. I have a friend who recently sustained a few fractured ribs when her bag was snatched (in a busy morning market). Luckily no serious head injury.
