Keep safe everyone, especially those who plans to travel. You might become a victim of “ipit Gang”.
The modus operandi of “Ipit Gang” conducted by more than three to five male and female criminals that positions themselves on public utilities mostly on buses. You will not know them since they are entirely separated and no one knows who they are except them.
They pretend to be bus commuters in such public utilities LRT, MRT, buses and jeeps, while the vehicle is moving, suspects will now shove on the target victim to create a distraction while another malefactor starts pick-pocketing or bag slashing. A member will also merge himself with the target passengers and serve as look out and will also serve as the stopper whenever someone tries to react or run after the suspects.
