Woman-led gang, who robs men after luring them, held in Egypt
The woman would then lure the potential victim into having an affair with her, only to bring him home, rob him of his money and belongings
Egypt’s security forces in Beni Suef governorate have arrested a five-member gang led by a woman, who lure men, rob them and extort them for more money if they do not want their revealing pictures leaked.
Lieutenant Mohammed al-Khulaisi, an aide for the interior minister in Beni Suef, received a notification of the gang in Bayadh al-Arab village whose head, a 31-year-old woman, makes random phone calls to find their victims.
The woman would then lure the potential victim into having an affair with her, only to bring him home, rob him of his money and belongings with the help of the four other members.
The four others, who act as angry relatives of the women, would then take a picture of the men, usually naked, and extort them for more money.
The gang’s victims did not come forward fearing defamation in their community.
When the police stormed the woman’s home, they found their next victim – naked. The gang has been detained for four days, and is under investigation.
