Madam Lim is an elderly feeder who heads out to feed cats in the neighbourhood twice a day.

Her phone was in a bag placed in a trolley next to her while she was feeding a cat when a man allegedly walked past and took her phone, identification cards and ATM card.

The post added that the man was caught in the act on CCTV.

It said a police report has since been made and advised other cat feeders and rescuers to mind their phones to avoid becoming victims as well.
