Men on Motorcycle Steal Woman's Hair

HairTwo men on a motorcycle grabbed a woman as she walked to church, pulled out a machete and cut off the waist-length hair she had been growing for two decades, police in Brazil said Thursday.

The woman, a homemaker whose name was not released, told police she was walking to church when she was assaulted late Tuesday, police officer Antonio Williams da Silva said by telephone from the northeastern city of Aracaju.

Da Silva said the woman told authorities she hadn't cut her hair for 20 years.

"It must have been nearly a meter and half (more than four feet) long," da Silva said.

The robbers cut the woman's hair above her shoulders, he said, apparently with the idea of selling it to be fashioned into a wig.

"A hairpiece that size could cost you as much" as $550, da Silva said.
