Burka-clad criminal stumps German police
German police Thursday said they were looking for a criminal who robbed an amusement arcade overnight, dressed in a burka.
Sporting the full body cloak worn by some Muslim women, the criminal, armed with a pistol, held up the arcade in the small town of Ratingen, in the west of the country.
The gangster walked over to a woman employee working at the cash desk and, handing over a paper bag, simply said: "money, money, money".
The employee was then locked up for an hour in the lavatory.
Police said the criminal was about 1.60 metres (5 foot 2 inches) tall, but did not know if they were looking for a man or a woman as the employee could not properly identify her attacker's voice.
