1st Stopped Pick-Pocket: Roman Children Attempt Theft On The Metro

We were in the subway in Rome and the girls came up next to me and attempted to get into my pockets. There were 3 children, approx 10 years old. They moved my shirt away from my pants and attempted to get into the right side of my pants.

Since I had the zipper closed and the flap over it, they couldn't' get it. As they were trying to get into my pockets, other people on the train noticed that something was happening. A local Italian man yelled and one of the ladies from my tour group also noticed what was going on. This happened right as we were pulling into a station right after the people yelled. The doors opened and the three children ran right out of the train like they were shot out of a cannon!

You know there's no way there were getting in my pants!
