A gang of thieves in Prague focused on poorly walking seniors. They robbed them of their purchases

According to forensic scientists, four women and three men mostly ran in shops from June to September. They are responsible for 41 cases.

“They literally committed ‘hyenism’ in cases where they chose people who were less mobile and used a walker or wheelchair as victims,” ​​said police spokeswoman Violeta Siřišťová.

The group was detained on Tuesday night in various parts of the republic. In addition, five of them were in a nationwide search. During house searches, police found stolen handbags, drugs or weapons. All detainees have already been prosecuted.
