Police have issued a warning after thieves stole a woman’s jewellery from her person whilst pretending to ask for directions to the hospital.
It's part of an emerging trend victims are distracted, usually by several people, who use excuses to engage them in conversation.
The woman was stopped on Portobello Road in West Bromwich around 3.15pm on Tuesday 8 March by two women in a blue Ford Focus.
As she gave directions, the two women got out and thanked her, putting necklaces and bracelet around her neck and wrists and hugging her.
But what the victim didn't notice was that they simultaneously unclasped her own necklace and bracelet without her knowledge.
