Theft and robbery

Street robbery is generally known as mugging or bag snatching. Pickpocketing is different, as victims aren’t aware that the offence is taking place.

  • Robbery is more likely to take place in quiet or dark areas and pickpocketing where it is busy, e.g. on a busy train in rush hour
  • Young men are most likely to be the victims of robbery and are typically attacked by other young men
  • If someone tries to take something from you by force, it may be best to give it to them. This will help you avoid getting injured
