Brazilian police are looking for a thief who allegedly stole a woman's hair while she waited in line at a bus stop. Not, like, by pulling it out! The man apparently used a "knife-like weapon to cut the hair while the woman turned her back to him (she "thought the man was going to steal her purse"). Police believe that it will be sold to some kind of shady wig-maker, which is, all things considered, the least-gross possibility.

An odd story all around, and even odder when you come across this detail at the end:

[Inspector Jose Carlos Bezerra da Silva] said the 24-year-old woman reported the case to police because she is evangelical and had to explain to her pastor why her hair wasn't long anymore.

We're not detectives, so we'll leave it to others to draw their own conclusions.
