Strange encounter: the real policeman declined to be named

An Israeli policeman responding to neighbours' complaints about a noisy hen party found himself mistaken for the main attraction.

The rowdy women had ordered a male stripper dressed as a policeman and, thinking the stripper had arrived, began trying to undress and caress him, ignoring his protestations.

One of the partygoers "took off my shirt and untied my shoelaces," the officer was quoted as saying by the Yedioth Ahronoth daily.

"She started stroking me and called on her friends to join in."


He showed his police badge, but the women just thought it was part of the act.

The policeman was reportedly only able to extricate himself when his partner called for reinforcements.

The revellers were fined.
