The police are searching for an immigrant who on Sunday night robbed two nuns as they were entering their convent, Qalb ta’ Ġesu’, in Marsa.
Tvm.com.mt is informed that the snatch and grab took place at around 7.30pm when the two nuns were in Triq Balbi, Marsa. From the initial investigations it appears that the immigrant stole a handbag which one of the nuns was carrying, in which there was a cheque for €300.
The two nuns were not injured and went to file a report at the Marsa police station, which led to the search being launched for the man in question. The empty handbag was later found by the police in Triq Diċembru 13.
