Authorities in Mexico say a machete-wielding thief dressed like a crooning cowboy stole his victims' belongings and then forced them to listen to him sing.

Police arrested Vicente Fernandez decked out in a charro [singing cowboy] outfit, with a 40-centimetre machete he used to frighten passers-by into handing over their loot, local police spokesman Alfredo Barro said.

But his crime did not stop there: at least one victim - machete pressed to his throat - was forced to listen to the thief belt out his own bit of warbling.

Gerry - your link no longer works

Give me your loot and I'll sing you a song: Mexican thief what a shame we don't have a pic of the thief!

a certain Sydney singer used to keep his kids in line when they were out by threatening to sing if they started to misbehaved. As much as they loved their daddy's singing, they didn't want to be embarrassed in public so they always froze!

There's a movie: "Hear My Song" but the plot is a bit different, and the singer is not quite so insistent.
