"Watch out for bag 'slashers'" Czech Republic Warnings Or Dangers Tip by FlowerOfScotland

Czech Republic Warnings and Dangers: 41 reviews and 14 photos

Watch out for small gangs of thieves who operate using a scalpel. When you are distracted, they simply slash open the bottom of your bag along the seam and catch the contents of your bag into a bag they are carrying. It happens very fast, and they are gone. Small rucksacks and shoulder bags are their favourite target. Even quickly slashing the straps and grabbing the bag is not unhearded of either.
