Chances are you are speaking of pickpocketing. If it is noted as a violent crime that is because of the fact you are removing someones pocessions while still on person. Example: Assault is when you physically cause damage v. Simple Assault can be based off of something like someones screams at you. Certain classification of law and justice are in a really grey area. Considering my 8yr old was recently caught digging through her daddies work coat I would not consider pick pocketing a violent crime lol.
