Astonishing footage posted to Facebook in Brazil shows how tourists are robbed in Rio de Janeiro at the 2016 Olympics. In the footage, a grown woman strides towards a pedestrian and flings her arm out in an attempt to steal her bag.
In another instance, a young boy hangs behind a man holding cash in his hand. Without one swift move, he grabs the cash and makes a run for it.
They reportedly snatch earphones, cash, handbags, backpacks, iPhones and jewellery.
