Italian police have issued video footage of a man who has been hypnotizing supermarket checkout staff and getting them to hand over the cash.
In every case, according to reports, the last thing staff remember is a man leaning over and saying ‘Look into my eyes’ before suddenly finding the till is empty.
In the latest incident captured on video footage the man walked into a bank in Ancona in northern Italy.
He waited until he got to a female bank clerk and, according to the video footage, appears to hypnotise her into handing over more than £600.
He then calmly walked out.
The cashier who was shown the video footage reportedly has no memory of the incident. She only realised what had happened when she saw the money missing.
Checks of CCTV cameras in the bank showed her being hypnotised by the man.
Italian police are now looking for the suspect – who bears an uncanny resemblance to Saddam Hussein – who they believe is either of Indian or North African.
An alcoholic who died after giving himself a sherry enema has won the 2007 Darwin Award.

The 58-year-old Texan couldn’t ingest alcohol by mouth because of painful medical problems with his throat.
He took to taking alcohol by enema instead but died after taking two 1.5 litre bottles of sherry.
First runners-up, and Double Darwin winners, were a young South Carolina couple, both 21, found naked and dead in the road in the early hours.
Police were initially baffled, until they found two sets of neatly folded clothes on top of a nearby building with a pyramid-shaped roof.
Other runners-up included:
An East German man who electrocuted himself when he tried to get rid of moles by pounding metal rods into the ground and connecting them to a high-voltage power line.
A West Virginia man who was crushed while dismantling a rundown barn. He fired up his chainsaw and ripped through a crucial support post, bringing down the whole structure on himself.
An Illinois man who won a game of chicken to see who could stay on a railway line the longest in the path of an oncoming train.
And a 29-year-old computer tutor who was killed in California while driving and working on his laptop at the same time. He was killed by oncoming traffic.
