Foreigner Assault In Beijing Update: What Is That Thing The Girl Appears To Grab Out Of The Man’s Pocket? [UPDATE]
RFH first noticed this. Around the nine-second mark in the video, the girl appears to grab something out of the man’s pocket, then (possibly) drops it. Best guess is a wallet. UPDATE, 7:08 pm: As pointed out by a commenter, it could well be a cell phone that she had in her hand from the beginning.
What does this mean? Again, very little. She could have been being savvy and wanted his identification. She could have been grabbing for random things and just happened upon whatever was in his pocket. It might not be a wallet, after all. We don’t know. But it’s worth noting nonetheless.

By the way, a press officer at the British consulate said the man has not gotten in touch with them.
