You're Feeling Very, Very Sleepy . . .
Last month, Italian police released a clip of an astounding robbery. The video shows a bearded man walking up to a supermarket register. He mutters a few words to the clerk, who then proceeds to hand the bearded man all the money from his register. No weapons were used. No threats were made. All the supermarket clerk can remember about the encounter is the bearded man leaning toward him and saying, "look into my eyes."
It was neither the Hypnotist Thief's first robbery, nor his last. In recent months, he's targeted both supermarkets and banks throughout northern Italy. Though he's been filmed by security cameras at least twice, he has yet to be captured.
