In New Zealand, a series of 'shoe robberies' targeting young women's shoes have occurred, and the police have started to pursue the suspect.

On the 27th local time, foreign media such as New Zealand TVNZ reported that on June 2nd, a man attacked a young woman's shoes in an apartment in downtown Auckland twice.

A local police official appeared on TVNZ's crime reporting program 'Police Ten 7' on the 24th and released a CCTV video of the incident.

According to CCTV footage released by the police, the suspect got into an elevator at around 5:45 p.m., following a young woman entering an apartment on Wakefield Street in Auckland.

When the woman got out of the elevator, he knocked her down into the hallway, took off a pair of shoes and tried to run away.

However, the apartment residents heard the woman's screams and stopped the suspect, who returned the shoes and left the building.

10 minutes later, the man targeted another woman with the same technique.

He went into another apartment nearby, chased after the young woman, took off a pair of her shoes and ran off the stairs of the apartment.

According to local police, the suspect is an Asian male in his 20s and 30s with a height of 180 cm and a solid build, wearing a blue hoodie, jeans, black sneakers, and a medical mask.

He even stared directly at the CCTV installed in the apartment before committing the crime.

Police said, "We are asking for the cooperation of citizens, such as reporting, as strange attacks targeting women's shoes can lead to more violence."

This is a 'news pick'.
