German police arrest ‘shoe robber’ suspect 德國「高跟鞋搶匪」落網

VIEW THIS PAGE

A German man accused of roaming the streets robbing women of their high-heeled shoes to fuel an apparent fetish has been arrested and detained, police said.

“The 27-year-old was brought before the competent judge in the Bonn court, who approved his being remanded in custody ... he has been put under guard in jail in Bonn police station,” a statement said.

The man was seized on suspicion of having committed a string of nine mysterious “shoe robberies” on female passers-by since 2008 in the western cities of Bonn and Cologne.

He would sneak up behind his victims and push them to the ground before removing their shoes, police said.

He was eventually caught, not on foot, but in a car during a police check. “The wanted man was arrested on the street,” police said.

The suspect has yet to come clean about all the crimes but has offered a “partial confession,” the police statement added.

德國警方表示,他們逮捕並拘留了一名被控在街上行搶女性高跟鞋,以滿足戀物癖的男子。

一份聲明稿指出:「這名二十七歲的男子被帶到波昂法庭接受法官訊問,法官裁定將他還押更審…他目前被關在波昂警局拘留所。」

這名男子因涉嫌一連串令人費解的「高跟鞋搶案」而被逮捕,德國西部波昂及科倫兩市自二OO八年起,接連發生九起女性路人當街被搶高跟鞋的案例。

警方表示,嫌犯會先悄悄走近被害人,然後將她們推倒在地,再搶走她們的鞋子。

他最後總算落網,但他當時不是在街上步行,而是開車時不巧遇到警察臨檢而被逮。警方說:「他們在街上逮捕到這名通緝犯。」

警方的聲明稿中也表示,這名嫌犯被捕後尚未全盤招供,僅承認犯下「部份罪行」。
