A thief in Aachen escaped arrest by exposing her breasts and accusing her would-be captor of rape, police in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia said on Friday.

The exhibitionist thief had mugged a disabled 66-elderly woman, stealing her identification and money from her waist pack. When the German granny called for help, a bystander tried to detain the thief, but she tore open her blouse and shouted “Help! Rape!” and escaped.

The 39-year-old man was so stunned and unnerved that he let the wily thief go, police said, adding that the woman managed to cover herself before slipping away.
