Authorities in southern California are looking for two suspects implicated in a series of robberies in Hollywood, but the curious thing about the case is the ‘dirty’ trick they used to strip their victims of their belongings.
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) posted images of alleged assailants, described as a Hispanic man and woman, and also released photos of the vehicle apparently used by the subjects to flee from the places where they commit the crimes.
According to the police report, the first theft occurred when they approached a pedestrian and told him that his shirt was stained with bird droppings. While they tried to clean it, one of them stripped the man out of his wallet. Subsequently, both suspects left the scene aboard a silver Nissan Rogue.
During the second robbery, the pair used the same method to steal a camera from another person.
