A British man has admitted to stealing shoes right off of women’s feet in public.
Omar Abd-el-Gowd, 26, who said he’d had a shoe fetish since he was 12, admitted to a total of eight robberies in London between December 2005 and November 2006.
He’s being charged with sexual assault by one of his victims, but has denied the allegations.
Gowd told a London jury that he had approached victims from behind, quickly lifted up one of their feet and ran off with one of their shoes. He claimed he barely recalled the details of the women he had attacked, but could completely remember their shoes. Creepy.
