Women are always targeted by criminals, so here’s a report to give women a chance to protect themselves better.
A lot of women make the mistake of leaving their purse on the front seat when they step out of their car to get gas. Some even leave the windows down which opens them up to theft. Disclaimer: This is not a judgment against the victim because lots of men and women have reflexive actions they commit that could be considered …not so smart. But now, the Today show has revealed in an investigative report, criminals called “sliders” are sliding up to women’s cars and snatching their purses out of the front seat.
The act is so bold and quick, that the woman being victimized is unaware or by the time she’s alerted to the crime, they’ve already made off with her purse. The thief is a passenger in another car pretending to get gas, but is really there to investigate your front seat. Then, by either opening the door or going through the window, they snatch a woman’s purse from her car.
The crime is not specific to any specific city as the report shows the slippery culprits are in cities across the nation from “Houston to Miami to Washington D.C.”
Check out the report and watch how the brazen offense is carried out and, in one case, thwarted by a woman who witnesses the attempt and keeps another woman from being victimized.
