"Brussels Pickpocket" Pickpockets Tip by Brusselspidgeon

Pickpockets, Brussels: 43 reviews and 16 photos

I had my wallet lifted at the Brussels Midi metro station while I was helping a kid in a wheelchair. These people have no decency. I'd been warned and took note of a man making very serious eye contact with me while helping the kid down the stairs to a crowded platform. I watched the man move to my right while maintaining eye contact, then we both boarded the subway on different cars. Once my hands were free I checked and found my wallet missing from my left front pants pocket. I was on the platfrom for less than a minute but that was enough. I was told be a resident that staring is a common distraction method. The police were useless and even annoyed that I bothered them.
