A robber shoe fetishist from Troisdorf was arrested this weekend after attacking eight women on the street and stealing their footwear.

Police in Bonn formed a special squad to find the 27-year-old man after he stole shoes from women near Bonn, in Cologne and Leverkusen.

His modus operandi was to approach the women on the street, push them over and steal their shoes before running off.

He was arrested on Saturday in Siegen where he was driving his car and was stopped by police.

In other shoe-related news, the annual stiletto run in Berlin was won at the weekend by 18-year-old Julia Plecher, who won €10,000 for running 100 metres in 14.2 seconds.
