The victim was indicted by a group of three people who claimed to be police. These fake researchers told the walker "you smell drugs" and searched him. The victim, who felt the scam, took his wallet out of his bag to prevent him from being stolen, but the thief grabbed it and withdrew 70 euros.
The hiker tried to recuperate his money, but was rejected by his attacker who then calmly walked away with his two accomplices.
The Tournai police opened an investigation.
