A 52-year-old man who is deaf-mute has been jailed for four years after being convicted of carrying out five armed robberies, the Times reports.
The cases, which all happened in Zebbug, targeted Patrizio’s hair salon, the Intimate underwear shop, De Rohan Pharmacy, Sta Marija Pharmacy, and Crops green grocery.
The man was caught after his last attempted hold-up at Patrizio’s hairdresser was foiled by owner Patrizio Parascandalo in January last year.
Dring the court proceedings, Mr Parascandalo had described how he had struggled with a hooded man who entered his shop, demanding money, according to the Times report.
