Cat lover


An armed man wearing camouflage tactical gear approached a 23-year-old worker as she was leaving the Cranbourne West Lost Dogs Home in Melbourne, Australia, about 11:30 p.m. Jan. 11 and demanded she turn over her cellphone, Detective Senior Sgt. Glen Cruse told the media. Victoria police said the man pointed his gun at the woman, then took her inside the shelter, tied her up and “asked where the cats were before he left the room and didn’t return,” the Daily Star reported. The woman freed herself and called for help; police are still looking for the man, and a motive.
