It tends to happen in cities because there is a possibility to commit it and both crime and urban are often associated with each other.

The street pattern is identified by using the Geographic Information System (GIS) to determine and analyse the area with high snatch theft cases. It was found that the area with high number ofreported snatch theft cases possessed a fragmented parallel street pattern.
