17-21 year olds arrested for robbing sex workers in Lucerne
Five people, aged between 17 and 21, have been arrested in Lucerne for robbing sex workers in the city.
The attacks all took place in August and September last year in the known red light district around Ibachstrasse. The women were robbed after being threatened with a handgun and pepper spray.
The group is made up of two women and three men. Prosecutors say they suspect they worked together and divided up the money between them.
Investigations are continuing.
