this happened to the wife of my colleague two days back in lahore , as recounted by him
PECO road brigde near PEL factory , ( the railway crossing )
Time was 9 PM
she was driving on her way back to DHA when at the crossing, two guys ( on foot ) approached from back and started " slapping" the read door. she panicked a loondked right , then the other a*** hole started slapping on the right rear door, they were shouting you hit us , you hit us, in the chaos and panic, she slightly lowered the left window ( about a few inches ) but thankfully kept driving and never stopped . after a few miles when she reached DHA, she realized her cell fone and wallet ( stashed in the space beneath the stereo ) were gone
[U]What happened ;-
[/U] this was a case of " distract and steal " . the guys were cunning, they observed the target at the crossing ( the car is slow then ) and then approached from the rear. the slapping on doors distracted the lady and she panicked whether she's hit someone. the mistake of the lady was to lower the left window which enabled the robber to do a sleight of hand on the fone and wallet,.
thankfully, nothing serious happened, just a lost fone and some credit cards which were quickly blocked
the fone IMEI was given to PTA to be blocked
