A woman was frustrated when her husband was busy on the computer rather than paying attention to her.

The frustrated woman of Italy, decided to take drastic measures to get her husband’s attention.

The mother of two turned to crime. A few days ago, the woman of Bergamo, stole the wallet of an elderly man.

She immediately surrendered herself to police and asked to be arrested. The 32-year-old woman told police that she was fed up of arguing with her husband over his spending a lot of time on the Internet, apparently talking to other women.

When the officers did not take her seriously, the woman warned that she will fill the police station with stolen wallets until she is arrested. The officer investigated to see if there was any sign of domestic violence in the couple’s relationship.

When officers found no signs of domestic violence they gave in to the woman’s request and arrested her for theft. The woman told a judge that she was hoping that her husband would “wake up” and pay more attention to her.

If convicted of robbing the elderly man, the woman faces four months in jail. At this stage, it is uncertain whether her tactics brought the desired effect of getting her husband’s attention.
