A shocked woman in Munich called police on Sunday evening after a man climbed into her car, demanded her purse – and threatened her with a syringe he said contained HIV.

The 59-year-old was in the middle of parking her car when a man in his late 30s climbed into the passenger seat, police wrote in an incident report.

He brandished a syringe full of yellow liquid in his left hand as he demanded cash and warned the woman that he could inject her with the virus.

His horrified target reached into her purse and gave the man a small amount of cash she had on her, prompting him to jump out of the car and flee on foot towards a nearby U-Bahn station.

The woman immediately called the police, who were unable to find the robber despite sending ten patrol cars to search for him.
