With the latest incident being reported, the link between each case is the description of the suspect – a woman in her 20s driving a white Honda Brio on a couple of occasions. In all five cases, police said the woman — asked her prey if she could borrow their phone as she needed to make an urgent call. She cites an emergency such as dead battery or low balance and requests the victims for their phones to make a call before speeding up and fleeing.
She is a phone thief but her fraudulence is impossible to read – appears to be from a nice background, wears branded clothes with matching accessories, and speaks fluent English.
Though separate theft cases have been registered, but the officials say that the description and the mode of operation of the theft were too similar, so the cases will not be dealt individually.
