In the footage, a grown woman strides towards a pedestrian and flings her arm out in an attempt to steal her bag. Astonishing footage posted to Facebook in Brazil shows how tourists are robbed in Rio de Janeiro at the 2016 Olympics.
They reportedly snatch earphones, cash, handbags, backpacks, iPhones and jewellery. In another instance, a young boy hangs behind a man holding cash in his hand. Without one swift move, he grabs the cash and makes a run for it.
