The bandits subsequently turned around and confronted her. Police said one of the pillion riders came off and grabbed her handbag; the woman at first resisted but then the suspect pulled out a handgun from his pants and pointed it at her.
The armed bandit then took away the woman’s phone, while the three others stood guard.
