A gang of thieves is ravaging New York City. Criminals always target victims' cell phones. In this way, they try to access their banking details via a hacker. The woman shown in the video below was also a victim of such a gang. Thieves on a motorbike tried to take her handbag, but they dragged the 62-year-old along the sidewalk.
The New York Police arrested a number of suspects in early February after a series of robberies in the American city. According to police, the suspects are said to be part of a larger criminal gang with an immigrant background. “These individuals do not represent the large group of people who come to New York to build a better life here,” officers warned.
One of the victims was 62-year-old Irina Panteleeva from Brooklyn. While she was walking at the end of December, she was suddenly dragged by two thieves on a motorcycle. They grabbed her handbag and dragged the woman several meters along the sidewalk. She crashed into a bike rack and lay motionless. Panteleeva suffered some bruises, but lost her mobile phone, among other things.
Mobile phone hacking
This is no coincidence, because thieves always target victims' mobile phones. In this way, they try to access their banking details via a hacker. Police hope to arrest more people in the coming days.
