Strange theft, culprit sought by police
Police in Iowa City, Iowa, are hunting for a man who robbed a sex shop at knife-point and stole a 20-pound rubber doll.
The robbery occurred last month, but police have had no luck tracking down the man who chased the clerk out of the story before stealing the $250 toy, which is shaped like a rump and boasts life-like rubber skin.
Now, investigators have released a photo of the masked man and his ill-gotten merchandise, hoping someone will recognize him and come forward
The picture, taken from the store's surveillance camera, shows him wrapping his arms around a large box and pulling it off the shelf.
According the police, the man walked into Romantix Pleasure Palace about 3am January 17 and pulled a hunting knife on the female store clerk
The woman jumped behind the counter and ran from the store.
The robber turned around and snagged the sex toy, a 'Fuck Me Silly #1,' the Smoking Gun reported.
The man then left without stealing anything else.
The toy is made by Pipedream Products, which offers one possible clue as to the motive for the robbery on its website.
It advertises the toy has 'over 20 lbs. of soft, Fanta-flesh.'
And it's so popular, the company says, the doll is sold out.
If this is anyone you may know hang your head in shame
