Via the BBC: Colombia hunts underwear robbers

Police in Colombia are searching for members of a gang who target women and steal their underwear in public.

A succession of women, mainly young women and students, have been attacked in the western city of Pereira, often at bus stops early in the morning.

The gang has become known across the city as the “knicker robbers”. They do not usually hurt their victims, instead demanding only underwear and valuables.

Police in Pereira have described the gang as “sexual maniacs”.

Gee, ya think?
