A woman who was having a coffee in a bar in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Palermo was the victim of a robbery, when two women who were sitting behind her took her cell phone in a single maneuver.
The incident took place in Gorostiaga and Arce, meters from the Palermo Hippodrome, an area full of bars and a lot of tourist movement.
The situation was recorded by the premises' security cameras. The images show the moment when one of the criminals, stealthily and quickly, covers herself with a shirt, extends her arm behind her and takes out the phone that was inside her purse.
