Police in Łódź arrested a 28-year old man in connection with recent incidents on public transport that saw young women unknowingly having pieces of their hair cut while travelling on trams in Łódź.
The arrest was made following a surveillance video which was made public. The video shows the man sitting behind a young woman on a tram and cutting a piece of her hair. Police and MPK Łódź, who shared the video on their social media sites, asked the public for assistance in the apprehension of the man who became known as the “Barber of Łódź”.
After the video went viral on social media, police received a tip which led to the arrest of a 28-year old construction worker. The man was working at the construction site of the new Łódź Fabryczna railway station. He has since confessed and admitted that he “loves to feel female hair”. Łódź prosecutor’s office has opened proceedings against the 28-year old who, if convicted, could face up to one year in prison.
