CAPE TOWN – Three women were caught on CCTV stealing a customer’s handbag at the Red Hawk Spur in Plumstead on July 28. In the one-minute clip, a family is seated in a booth enjoying a meal.
Meanwhile, the group of three women is in the next booth, watching them. One of the women, who appears to be pregnant, keeps watch.
The bag snatcher reaches over the seat and carefully swipes it without the owner noticing her arm. She then passes the bag over to her accomplice, who places the handbag in a bigger bag. Once the victim’s handbag is out of sight, the trio then casually get up and walk out of the restaurant.
