GERMAN SHOE FETISHIST SENTENCED TO 4YRS
A little perplexing but an unemployed German man has been sent to a secure psychiatric unit after attacking 7 women & stealing their high-heeled shoes to fuel his apparent fetish.
The 27-year-old, who was not named, was sentenced to four years & nine months behind bars & convicted of seven counts of theft & four of causing bodily harm, Bonn court spokesman Matthias Nordmeyer told AFP.
"He will have to stay (in the secure unit) until it is determined that he no longer poses a danger," he said.
The man would sneak up behind his victims in Bonn & nearby Cologne in 2008 & 2009, push them to the ground & flee with their shoes, police said.
He was arrested in July 2009.
The perils when shoe addict meets shoe fetishist evident yet again...
