Several reports in the St Louis area lately of the old “Bump and Rob” crime. Someone bumps into the rear of your car, and when you get out to investigate, a passenger in the car that struck yours jumps into your car and drives away.
Some tips if this happens to you:
- Look around before you get out.
- Make sure there are others around.
- Check out the car that hit your car. Are there several occupants?
- If the situation doesn’t seem right, stay in your car, call 911, and move somewhere safe. A well-lit, busy parking lot is best.
