Even in our crime infested world, there is occasionally a crime that takes your breath away. In Sweden, this guy took that distinction when he combined the pickpocketing of an elderly woman and an assault on another woman with children who tried to help her. He punched the mother in front of her children and spat on her.
The crime occurred in Stockholm and the police released the video below to help find this guy.
The video is from the Gamla Stan tube station in central Stockholm, Sweden, was caught on CCTV and shows the man creeping up behind a women described as a pensioner who was trying to get her phone out of her bag. When the mother intervenes, he assaults her and then spits on her in front of the children. While one can hardly expect decency from criminals as a whole, I can say as a long criminal defense attorney that many criminals would not sink this low. I expect the Swedish police have made this guy a special project for arrest. Ironically, I would expect that he would have an equally hostile reception in jail from the other inmates.
