Devastated Toi and Nina, both from Thailand, watched back their video and were shocked to see three attractive females had been walk closely behind them.

Footage shows how one glamorous woman in black jumper and with black sunglasses on her head looked over Nina’s shoulder while a second woman, in black leather jacket and holding a red smartphone, eyed her friend’s handbag.

The blonde pickpocket then dips her hand into Toi’s bag and pulls out the purse. The two women are then joined by a third accomplice in sunglasses and holding an orange jacket who walks round the back of them to quickly receive the stolen purse under the coat.
