Maybe the transeunte is more or less a pedestrian or passerby.Right on the money. You might translate it as "mugging" or something along those lines. It's kind of like, see someone, try to pick their pocket, run away with their wallet/purse if you can, or if you can't, start hitting them and rolling around on the ground until you do get their wallet or they send you crying to mommy. Not the most admirable way of making a living, but it's easy and requires no education or job training, which is why it's extremely common in places like Mexico City.
