What’s next?

Police are on the lookout for the person who perpetrated this act of thievery using a pro-wrestling mask to carry out the same.

Author’s take

We, as pro-wrestling fans, are a tight-knit community and there’s no place for such lowly acts in our world. Mr Thief, if you really were a true La Parka fan you would’ve honoured the mask, instead of using it to enable your cowardly act.

Here’s hoping the powers that be ensure justice is served.
