Robbing an 88 year old woman; how disgusting!

Many people are very careless leaving their handbags unzipped. It is mostly young ladies busy on their phones. Even when closed they have the bags on their shoulder behind them or leave it on a chair in a restaurant. You are easy targets and should be more mindful as this can cause a lot of stress.
She probably is on welfare, and doing the stealing at the same time. I hope they get her. And get her out.
