Paris, France (CNN) -- A man in France was stripped of 300 euros when a robber distracted him with her breasts, authorities say.

Police say on August 7, the man inserted a card into a cash machine in central Paris to withdraw money when two young women approached him and asked for money. The women waved a newspaper at the man in an attempt to distract him, but the technique didn't work.

So the women tried another strategy: One of them bared her breasts and put her hand on the man's genitals while the other took the opportunity to withdraw 300 euros, police said. The women fled and have not been identified.
