Witnesses Fail To Describe Bank Robber As They Were Distracted By His “Ugly 80’s Tie”
Bad Soden-Salmünster, Germany: A man who robbed a bank could not be described to police by witnesses, because they were reportedly distracted by his ugly 80s tie.
The robber, who is reportedly in his 20s, entered a bank last Tuesday and told the cashier to hand over a yet undisclosed amount of money.
According to authorities, the man was armed with a handgun. However, the descriptions of him are vague. Police say his strange 1980s-style tie distracted witnesses so much they couldn’t remember anything else.
The robber took what he came for and ran off, leaving authorities to question the people who saw it all go down in front of their eyes.
But sadly, they didn’t have much to say.
The police are of the mind that the neon tie was actually part of his smart plan to divert attention from his more defining bodily features.
In an interview for Der Spiegel, a police spokesman said:
“He did it cleverly. Everyone focused on the ugly tie and didn’t pay attention to his face.”
Like it or not, the plan seems to have worked like a charm.
The man is still at large and authorities still have no idea who he could be.
