dear nkhanna, new york is very, very bad, even on today the Thanksgiving holiday, two 17 year old boys stold a honda accord out in the suburbs, and it was stolen out of a mans driveway. he got a friend to help him chase the boys down, and by luck spotted them in his stolen car on the interstate, he notified the police on his cellphone and they caught the boys...i was thinking it is a holiday, they should be home with their families having the holiday dinner, not out stealing cars...now they are in jail...i am so sorry for what happened to you and your sister on the train, and i'm glad the thief didn't get the golden chain, but i feel terribe that the violence injured your sisters neck...God protected you both, that day...stanzi

I guess there are lots of stories like snatching. In the Philippines, the in thing now is snatching done by people in the motorcycle, where they grab people's bag and drive fast. I have been slashed once while sitting in a public vehicle.
