Just Another Day in Holland

There's the man and woman who were standing outside someone else's house, "suddenly wanted to have sex," and broke into the house to do so.

And then there are the neighbors who called the police when they heard "strange noises" coming from the house. Called the police? Either this was some pretty funky sex or the neighborhood is populated by monks.

Finally, we've got the "lust hairdresser."
Women in the district of Emmerhout in Emmen have been warned about the reappearance of a 'lust hairdresser'. The man tries to convince women with long hair to have him cut their hair, pretending he works with a hairdressing salon. He leaves notes under the windscreen wipers of parked cars or telephones prospective women [I assume "prospective women" is an artifact of the translation, not an indication that he targets transsexuals]. Police said the man has been regularly active since 1995, but it is difficult to stop him because he does not commit any criminal offences, despite his obsession.
Not so weird, you say? After all, people all over the world have all kinds of fetishes. But I thought the final sentence of the story had a particularly Dutch feel to it.
Police are warning women about his services, partly due to his poor hairdressing skills.
