Bag snatched? There’s an app for that – or so one woman learned after being robbed in the capital’s Kakab commune on Monday.

After returning home from an engagement party, the woman was unloading her car when a man pulled up on a motorbike and grabbed her bag – allegedly containing three iPhone 6 pluses and $1,000 – before fleeing.
