Robbery instead of striptease

A RATHER unusual theft was reported on International Women's Day (March 8) in Košice, when a trusting 81-year-old pensioner let two unknown women into his flat after they promised to throw him a party, spiced up with a striptease, to celebrate the occasion.

"The women took advantage of the situation and later stole his wallet, which contained €3,000, as well as a hearing aid, a radio-cassette player, a pair of binoculars, four wristwatches and several boxes of washing powder. The total damage caused was €4,000," Košice Regional Police spokesperson Alexander Szabo told the TASR newswire.

The police have warned people not to trust strangers, not to lend them money for any reason and never to let them enter their homes under any circumstances - not even under the pretext of being hungry, thirsty, having an urgent need to use the bathroom, or as in this particular case, the promise of a striptease.
