A man desperately in need to release his sexual tension has been caught on surveillance camera stealing a £35 s*x doll from a vending machine.
The Chinese man was seen walking into a s*x shop in Jinan city, east China’s Shandong province, in the wee hours on Monday. The police have started investigating the matter after the owner of the shop reported the incident, reports PearVideo.
‘He had a bag of equipment,’ the shop owner told a reporter as the footage showed the suspect taking out a flat-head screwdriver to open the vending machine.
According to reports, the footage showed how the suspect came through an unlocked door and took away one s*x doll on the top shelf of the vending machine.
‘The vending machine opens 24 hours, so the door is always open,’ explained the owner.
He told the reporter that the stolen sex doll cost about 300 yuan (£35).
Viewers on Weibo, a Chinese social media site, said he was too desperate to find a girlfriend whom he could bring home for the Chinese New Year.
One person commented: ‘His parents must be pestering him to get married as soon as possible!’
Jinan police have started an investigation. The suspect is still at large.
