The traffic thief had put his hand into the car through the window to pick the property of the occupant as usual but was caught immediately by the passenger who refused to let his hand go, hold fast on to it while the driver kept moving.
The robber who at this point was begging for mercy, received slaps while his hand was held in the car and he used his other hand to support himself from falling or getting even more injured by holding the window of the car with it.

This is a form of robbery carried out by some thugs who break into windows of unsuspecting vehicles, pick their phones, hand bags and any other valuable within their reach and in many cases get away with it.
