A charlatan tried to sell carpets to elderly people and a duo of criminals rob a jeweller and take HUF 4 million (€ 11,000) worth of jewels from the store. Also, there was a double murder in Kisláng. The suspect is a 26-year-old man who kills a couple.
Police reported, that in Budapest a swindler tried to extort money from elderly people with a trick. The Romanian man said that he was from Iran and that his carpet was a Persian rug. He was kind to his victims and even offered them a ride home in his car.
At first, the charlatan tried to offer the carpet for his victims free of charge, but when they arrived at the location of the elderly person, he immediately changed his behaviour.
He had always managed to force more money out of his victims than what the rug was worth. The charlatan was operating in district II of Budapest. One time he even tricked one of the elderly victims to walk with him to an ATM and once there,
the swindler pressed another zero on the machine and ran away with HUF 100,000 (€ 274) instead of HUF 10,000 (€ 27,4).

The Police have not yet found the perpetrators, but a camera recorded them as they left. The authorities are asking for the help of anyone who might have any idea about their identity and whereabouts. The stolen jewels include watches, rings, necklaces, bracelets and medals.

He immediately called the authorities and thanks to the thorough search and expertise of the investigators, the assumed perpetrator has been caught and awaiting further action.
