The report quoted a police officer who said, “Of the 50 cases reported at the police station, 80% of them were regarding phones and wallets being stolen. Central Park has a capacity for around 700 people but around 15,000 turned up for the event each day, making it difficult to even move around in the rush or identify the accused.”
