Abbotsford Police warning about (so-called) distraction thieves

BY , Feb 15, 2020 3:06 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

Abbotsford Police are once again warning the public that a group of so-called distraction thieves is back in town and targeting elderly pedestrians.

They say a female suspect got out of a grey vehicle and pushed an elderly woman to the ground before taking a gold chain from her neck and fleeing on Monday.

Police say thieves struck again late this morning, when a female suspect got out of a white vehicle and approached another elderly woman, stealing her necklace.

They say there appears to be more than one suspect involved and police are concerned by their escalating violence in the incidents this week.
