GTA Myths Wiki

Trapped Pedestrians are a proven myth in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.


Inside the Vice Point Mall, the player can find various pedestrians trapped inside the walls. The myth originated in 2010 when a YouTube user uploaded a video showcasing two trapped pedestrians inside a closed-off restaurant window. For some time, it was assumed that the pedestrians were simply put there to act as cashiers before the windows were closed off, but subsequent investigations showed that there were multiple pedestrians found in cordoned-off areas of the mall, including the construction area of Vinyl Countdown.

The myth can be considered a glitch and a leftover from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, when the areas that these pedestrians spawned in were still open.
