A thief in Jaragua, Southern Brazil, was caught in the act with a headless mannequin after breaking into the mall and stealing some clothes.
Police report the suspect, who wore a T-shirt over his head, stole the discount clothes in order to purchase money for drugs.
The acts, which included him kissing the mannequin’s breasts before trying to have sex with it, were all caught on CCTV. Security guards discovered the unsettling footage while investigating the break-in.
He was later arrested after returning to the store and being recognized by staff.
The suspect told the Folha De Jaragua newspaper that he broke into the shopping center because he “had nothing else to do.” He did not comment on the sexual acts he performed on the mannequin.
“If such an individual is capable of committing an act like this, imagine if he broke into a house? He could do the same with a helpless person,” the shopping center manager, Ricardo Carvalho, explained.
We’re not sure if this guy has a case of agalmatophilia, the uncommon sexual paraphilia in which individuals derive sexual arousal from an attraction to (usually nude) statues, dolls, or mannequins, or if he simply watched the movie Mannequin one too many times and thought this one would turn into Kim Cattrall.
