A young woman’s handbag was stolen from beneath her nose by a gang of guys who waited by her side until she was too distracted to notice. The victim is now using CCTV footage and social media to help track down the seemingly expert thieves.
“The owner and staff were helpful enough to find this footage of the three guys who stole my small black bag,” said Talitha Dimech on Facebook. Her handbag contained her iPhone, car keys, house keys, ID card, car license and some cash.

“It looks like they’ve been doing this for a while. They must have had something to snatch it with.”
“As you can see in the video, it was super quick, so it looks like they’ve been doing this for a while. They must have had something to snatch it with,” Ms Dimech told Lovin Malta.
The incident happened at Alex House in Paceville early this morning at 1.30am. Ms Dimech said more footage will be gathered from other clubs to help track down the culprits.
