Watch how at least three women pretended to shop for bags and cooperated to rob the woman of her phone. It was too late when she noticed that her small bag had already been opened and her gadget was taken by the Salisi members.

Salisi is one of the more common modus operandi of robbers in public places. It involves several members who cooperate either to distract the victim while a cohort robs her. The stolen item(s) are then swiftly passed on to other accomplices at the scene so that it would not be traced and found.

This Christmas season, with shoppers busy with their holiday shopping and errands, Salisi members are all over malls and shopping areas.
