I nearly had my wallet and passport taken from a bumbag in Malaga last weekend. Three pickpockets working together. One young tall man and two stocky women.
As I walked across the Puente Misericordia towards the central station he walked alongside me. When he didn’t pass I speeded up, and so did he. I then slowed down and it was then I felt hands on the zips of my bag. I shouted pick pockets and they made off. It was a very close call.
