Italian police have reportedly arrested two brothers suspected of robbing dozens of cash machines while wearing masks of the US President Donald Trump.
The brothers who were identified as Vittorio and Ivan Lafore, aged 26 and 30, targeted cash machines near the northern Italian city of Turin.
According to reports, in closed circuit footage of one of the robberies, one of the brothers in a Trump mask is seen covering the surveillance cameras in the lobby of a bank and planting an explosive in the cash dispenser.
He then ducks around a corner after lighting the fuse, just before a violent blast.
The stunt is said to be coming from the 1991 film Point Break starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, in which a gang of surfers don masks of former US presidents while robbing banks.
But in a statement police said the brothers had been inspired by a different film.
“Inspired by the film The Jackal, whose protagonist — played by Bruce Willis — changes the colour of his car because police are in pursuit, the two brothers painted their [white] Mercedes black,” the official statement said.
