  • UK armed robber wears burkha as a disguise

    Decoy dressed as Muslim mother pushing a pram

    British police are searching for a 6ft 6in armed robber who robbed a jewelry store disguised as a Muslim woman wearing a burkha and pushing an empty pram, British press reported Saturday.

    The man acted as a decoy in order to be buzzed into the highly secured "Friends Jewellers" in Cape Hill near Birmingham. Once he was in he was quickly followed by four men wearing hoods with their faces covered who began to hammer down a second security door.

    The Sun newspaper reported that "the burkha-shrouded giant" and his accomplices got away with almost US $400, 000 (£200,000) worth of gems.

    The thieves reportedly sprayed the terrified shop owner and his brother and two security guards with pepper spray before fleeing the scene.

    The gang, believed to be British-Asian's, are being hunted by the police.

    The Sun quoted local councilor Keith Davies as saying: “It’s the first time I’ve heard of anything like this. It’s worrying.”
