Gone in 6 seconds: KL biker snatches unsuspecting tourist's phone right outside hotel

Two tourists in Kuala Lumpur fell victim to an apparent snatch theft outside a hotel.

According to The Star, a video of the incident has been circulating on social media.

In the video, the tourists can first be seen talking to a staffer at the pick-up point of the hotel.

As they were doing so, the alleged thief rode up to them on a motorcycle, and reportedly snatched a phone from the hand of one of the tourists.

The heist lasted no longer than six seconds.

The motorcyclist left the scene thereafter, and the tourists seemed like they were too stunned to give chase.

A spokesman for the police said that they have not received any report on the incident, but reminded the public to be aware of their surroundings.
