BEWARE OF THE BIRDMAN: British pensioners on Costa del Sol issue warning after bizarre ‘bird poo’ robbery

HEADS UP: British pensioners were showered in a brown liquid

A PAIR of retired British pensioners are sounding the alarm after being robbed of €300 in a ‘bird poo’ attack.  

David Knight, 79, and his wife of 56 years Eileen, 77, from Yorkshire, were walking home on the A-368 road towards Benalmadena when they were showered in a brown liquid.

VICTIMS: David and wife Eileen with family

A ‘Spanish’ passerby indicated it was bird droppings, and began to help them clean their clothes. But when David got home he realised all his cash had been removed from his wallet.

Eileen, a former teacher, thought she saw a woman on a ledge parallel to the road, who could have shot the substance at the couple.

Meanwhile, David believes that another man, leaning on a grey saloon car acted as a getaway driver.

“We both couldn’t believe what happened,” he told the Olive Press, “people should be aware of the ‘bird man’!”
