MrCanary Posted March 15, 2008 Share Posted March 15, 2008 My wife and I will be making our first visit to central Paris this year. We had planned to travel about the capital on the Metro, but today I was told, by a regular visitor to Paris, why he and his wife never use the Metro.He said they had arrived in Paris at Gare de Nord and were walking into the Metro when a rough looking woman tried to grab his wife's handbag. She fought the woman off, who then ran to join three other rough looking women. My two friends made their way down to a platform and just as they were walking towards a train, the four women attacked them, trying to grab the handbag again and also get into the man's back pockets. This was foolish on their part as he head-butted one of them, kicked a second, then swung out but missed a third. The four women then ran off. Now, for any doubters who read this, my friend is an honest and reliable person who is not prone to exaggeration, so I fully believe his story.My questions are, has anybody heard of this type of incident before, and is the Paris Metro a place to be avoided?
