Lyon prosecutors seek Geneva police help in elderly theft case
French prosecutors in Lyon are asking Geneva police for information regarding thefts from elderly people.
Two men in their fifties have been arrested in France accused of preying on those who are alone and vulnerable. Police say they suspect the men of approaching pensioners, befriending them and then robbing them.
Police have found Swiss francs and Swiss mobile phones. They believe there are victims in Geneva as well as France.
Prosecutors say any evidence against the men from Switzerland will be added to the charges the men face in France.
