YEREVAN, APRIL 10, ARMENPRESS. Two muggers wearing medical face masks have robbed a woman in Gyumri city in the morning of April 8, police said.
The two muggers, whose face masks were what appears to be a method to conceal their identity rather than to fight the coronavirus pandemic, stole the woman’s jewelry in broad daylight in the street.
Local police said they have filed a criminal case and are investigating.
