Police have just released video of a daring daylight robbery in the East Village of NYC by a perp in a Catwoman mask. She’s believed to be the same woman who held up two stores in Queens. Good thing they have an amazingly-detailed sketch to go by. They’ll catch the woman with the lopsided afro any second now.
Cameras captured the sleek-looking crook prance into the high end shoe shop about 1 p.m., wearing the mask as she browsed among the heels for about a half hour before calmly marching up to the counter, where she handed a note to a cashier and kept her hand inside her purse, all the while, unsuspecting shoppers passed in and out of the store. “Give me the money, I have a gun,” the note read, according to police. In the video she can clearly be scene snatching the cash from the employees hand and stuffed it into her purse then grabbed the note before calmly strutting out the door, escaping with just $86, police said.

I don’t know. Seems like a pretty lame Catwoman, shopping for an hour ahead of time so they could get a good look at her, and she didn’t even backflip out of the building after stealing eighty-six dollars. How many cans of Fancy Feast can you get these days with $86 anyway? And she’ll probably waste it all on catnip.
