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.
