A 94 year old woman let two people into her flat because she thought they were caretakers - but they were thieves who tried to rob her, according to Aftonbladet on Wednesday.

The actual caretakers arrived moments later and understood what had happened, at which point they locked the door from the inside. They called the police who arrived and arrested the two culprits.

"They are under suspicion of serious theft," explained Aftonbladet.
