Just a small update for the weekend.
It appears that a man or men are identifying women who are shopping at the Al Fair in MQ as easy targets for robbery. Some are followed from the ATM's at Bank Muscat/ HSBC, some appear to just be targets of oppurtunity.
The robberies usually happen once the women have gotten into their cars - the theif simply walks up to the car, opens it, snatches the bag and then legs it. The theif is not wearing a dishdasha and looks like he is in his mid to late twenties and is apparently a fast little bugger. The ROP are aware and investigating. The management at Al Fair have no external cameras, and have decided not to put up a sign warning others of this threat as it might deter shoppers from visiting there.
Back to ABC's people - get in your car and lock your doors, problem solved.
Enjoy the weekend.
