Police said Bahou-Jabour then approached another woman who was singing ‘It’s Coming Home’ before grabbing her and trying to take the watch from her.
But the victim realized something was wrong, police said, and resisted, before Bahou-Jabour twisted her arm causing her pain and removed a designer watch valued at £ 4,700 from her wrist.
After high-fives with the couple, the 24-year-old launched into street movements before removing a £ 9,000 Rolex watch from a woman’s wrist and failing in a similar attempt to take a watch from her partner.
Closed circuit television shows him running through the grounds of San Felipe Cathedral, where he runs into a woman who also wears a Rolex.
This technique, in which a criminal dances with his victim to distract him, has been referred to as the ‘Ronaldinho’ in honor of the famous dancing soccer player.
“ Normally pickpockets try to steal using stealth so you don’t even feel it. But this technique uses the opposite approach, using excessive contact to divert your attention from the feeling that your pockets are being emptied or, in this case, your watch being stolen.
“This is not a skill that you learn overnight; It requires many hours of training and practice to perfect itself, and it is very effective.
‘I’ve seen Ronaldinho’s technique used before, but this delinquent’s particular dance moves were the strangest I’ve ever seen. Part Bruce Forsyth, part Artful Dodger.
“I always advise people to be on guard when going out at night, as professional pickpockets are just as active then as they are during the day.
“The best protection you can have is to recognize the signs of pickpockets doing what they do, get away from them and raise the alarm.”
Bahou-Jabour and were jailed last month after they were caught on CCTV pretending to dance and hug their victims
Bahou-Jabour will be sentenced on October 6.
As part of the investigation, Bahou-Jabour’s mobile phone was examined and footage from a house party showed associates Abdul Boychaala and Hussen Ehab of Nottingham, who were jailed last month for the same scheme.
They had targeted students for their mobile phones with the same leg-blocking movements, but Nottingham Police CCTV work meant they were both jailed in August.
Boychaala and Ehab, both from Radford, Nottingham, were imprisoned for 28 months each at Nottingham Crown Court.
