Locals had tried to detain the suspect who was then taken to the police station for further investigation. The suspect was walking nearby the foreign tourist and found a good time to pick pocket the money from the tourist’s trouser. The Russian tourist was reported to be drunk at that moment. Locals around that area had witnessed the crime and therefore tried to detain the suspect from running away. The suspect confessed that he was hanging out in that area and did not plan on running away. The guy recording the video was a friend of the suspect who wanted a share from pick-pocketing the tourist but the suspect denied and therefore the friend reported it to the police.

After preliminary investigations the police failed to believe the suspects confession, they also identified drug usage, where purple substance was detected in his urine. Further investigations are now being proceeded.
