Male rob­bers a pair of burkas


LON­DON: Rob­bers who dressed in burkas to raid a pawn­bro­kers were caught af­ter passers-by no­ticed they “did not walk like women” and called cops.

Armed with a fake gun, Michael Lindo, 34, and Aaron Dumetz, 24, struck as staff pre­pared to open the shop.

They forced one woman to open a safe and stole jew­ellery and cash worth £64,000.

But wit­nesses who saw them in the full-length Is­lamic gar­ments were alerted by their manly gait and raised the alarm. Po­lice swarmed and chased the pair as they fled the shop in South Lon­don.
