Sounds like what happened was a residential burglary, and not a “robbery” ??

In either case, I would file a report at the closest district Police Office/Station in the neighborhood in which the crime occurred. This should have been done soon after the crime was discovered. Time is always of the essence, in trying to ascertain who the perpetrator was. If possible, provide very accurate descriptions of the merchandise, as well as serial numbers (if applicable) as well as replacement value or purchase receipts and be fully prepared to answer all of the officer’s detailed questions of date, time, location, etc. Be prepared to also answer the question, as to why you are waiting some weeks, to notify the police ??

GUEST11335 Be carful when you ride on Shanghai subway. Last night I got robbed, someone tooked my iPhone from my purse, and it was inmidiatly turned off, find my iPhone application still pending until is turn on again. The Chinese government control very well your access to internet, but they cannot control the sticky fingers for the tourists belonging.

Very strange, why so many crimes exposed in such a short period? Even rob a common Chinese could be a serious case, to a foreigner is unimaginable... Foreigners have high respects in Chinese society (though we don't think its fair as common Chinese citizen), and the polices often pay more attentions on the cases related with foreigners, if the crime happened, please report to the nearest police station, if not, please stop spreading fake news.

Welcome any tourist to read annual crime report from international organization before starting out, You would know why China has a such low crime rate, especially in the large cities, like Shanghai, Beijing, anyway, hope all of you have a safe, comfort and fulfill journey in China.
