Ponytail thief strikes in Jakarta

A TOURIST in the Indonesian capital travelling on one of its pickpocket-prone buses was stunned to find her wallet safe but her hair snipped off during a ride.

The victim, Nuryamah, 35, felt a tug on the back of her head as she took a mid-morning ride in Jakarta yesterday and realised a thief had cut off 40cm of her lengthy locks, the Jakarta Post reported.

"It took me six years to grow this,'' she sobbed to police as she filed a report to them. A nearby officer nabbed the culprit, Agus Setiawan, who told police he had intended to use the ponytail to make keychains.
