Re: Thieves and Lausanne Train Station
Thanks Vuachère for sharing your incident, and for the videos.
Thanks to those I paid more attention while on the metro line the other day and was able to avoid a woman to get robbed.
This happened in the M2 line. I saw 3 guys looking suspiciously to people, so I decided to be aware of them. At one point the 3 of them got up and were standing up next to a woman. While 2 of them were covering, another one started to touch the bottom part of her backpack, and immediately started opening the zip and put his hand in.
After I saw it, i went to them and was able to stop it.
They left immediately in the next stop, Lausanne-Flon. They looked eastern-europeans, 2 of them quite tall. I gave their description to the police in Lausanne Gare.
I hope that this will help others to be more aware when travelling on public transport.
It's amazing the amount of people that get into the train, only checking their phones, and not paying attention to their belongings. That's the type of people they target.
