New York is having a lot of problems with rising crime and in true New York style it's also seeing some really strange crimes too:

A serial shoe snatcher is stealing shoes off of women walking on the streets of New York City.

The NYPD says he has struck at least three times since the beginning of the year. The man takes one shoe and flees, according to cops.

Just one shoe? Who takes just one??

Okay I mean you shouldn't be stealing any shoes. It's just weird that anyone would be a single-shoe snatcher.

More confoundingly, the thief has no clear modus operandi—he steals from both feet.

On Jan. 24 at about 9 a.m., the suspect followed a 24-year-old woman into a mixed commercial and residential building at 739 Utica Avenue in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, and removed her right shoe before taking off.

On Feb. 9 at about 11:05 a.m., the victim was going up the street staircase at the Grand Army subway station in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn when the man ripped the left Nike sneaker off the foot of the 24-year-old woman.

Seriously, what's he doing with those shoes??

Actually on second thought nevermind I don't wanna know.
