There have been several incidents where elderly victims have been approached at their residences, or other public places when they are alone, by a female suspect who engages the victim in conversation. Often, the suspect will ask for directions to a local hospital or church. The suspect then embraces the victim in the guise of thanking them for their help and, while distracted, the victim's jewellery is stolen or switched with fake items.
