A weird criminal robbed a woman before giving her back the cash because she asked for it, police in Japan said.

Gifu police said that they are looking for the 30-year-old man who robbed the woman while he was wearing a skirt and black tights.

Around 12:00 a.m. on Sunday, the suspect approached the 31-year-old woman from behind and grabbed her arm. He pulled out a knife and ordered her to lie down on the ground.

She handed over her purse, and the man retrieved 4,000 yen ($35) in cash from it. The woman then asked the thief for her money, and he returned it.

The suspect then fled from the scene. The woman was not injured. The woman described the man as being 30 years old, 5 feet and five inches tall, and having long brown hair.
