Thieves use breasts to distract victim
Police in France are looking for two attractive female thieves who bared their breasts at a man at a cash point to distract him before stealing his money.
The women in their 20s exposed themselves to the victim as he punched his pin code into an ATM machine in Paris.

The incident was captured on CCTV at the cash machine on Paris’s Left Bank, but the women could not be identified, a French police spokesman said.
