A woman here claimed that while she was using her iPad on an MRT train, two men made off with her iPhone, which was in her unzipped bag.
The police confirmed that a report regarding the case has been made.
The woman said she suspects the men were foreigners, prompting the question: Are there foreign syndicates targeting train commuters?
When asked about this, train operator SMRT did not respond to the question directly.
According to police statistics, 3,885 foreigners were arrested for crimes here last year, including theft and housebreaking.
