Old man robbed while praying at mosque

An Arab man pinched the purse and visa card of an old Saudi man while praying at a mosque and managed to get more than SR80,000 out of his account before he was arrested, a newspaper reported on Thursday.

Police seized the unidentified man while using the Saudi’s visa card in the central province of Qassim although he stole him at a mosque in the eastern province, the Arabic language daily Sabq said.

“The man confessed to stealing the Saudi and other people before…police found that he is already wanted in five burglary cases,” it said.
