A bride-to-be in the Lower Saxony city of Osnabrück went berserk in a dry cleaner's shop upon discovering her wedding dress had been stolen, police confirmed on Thursday.

“She really lost it,” a police spokesperson told news agency DPA.

Brazilian-born Rosinerie Bensmann told the newspaper Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung the stress of losing her treasured gown just two days before the nuptials was too much to bear.

“She freaked out, screamed at the owner and ripped clothing from the stands,” the paper said. “An employee of the dry cleaner's called the police out of fear, and it took six of them to get her out.”

The bride found another gown to wear on loan, but said it would be impossible to replace her original gown, which she bought 15 years before her wedding.

“The dress is gone and was our responsibility,” the store owner told the paper. “It's clear that we will pay for it.”
