Three robbers in Berlin saw the coronavirus pandemic as an opportunity, donning face masks to plunder a petrol station in the German capital, police said on Wednesday.
A woman working at the petrol station in the city's Weissensee district did not consider their facial coverings suspicious due to the current situation, police said in a statement.
One of the thieves pretended to buy a chocolate bar on Tuesday evening. When the 63-year-old employee opened the till, he allegedly pulled a long weapon from his jacket and swung it at her. The woman, who was working alone in the petrol station at the time, retreated while the two other men jumped behind the till and pocketed the cash before fleeing the scene, according to the police statement. The employee suffered minor injuries.
 Police say an investigation is ongoing.
