Robbers Steal Man’s Phone, Offer to Sell It Back to Him

Some criminals just aren’t all that bright. Take for example the group of reprobates who robbed a man in downtown Seattle last week and then tried to sell him back his cell phone, which they had just stolen…along with all his cash.

According to a police report, two men were walking on 7th and Pike at about 7:30 p.m. on February 23rd when a group of five or six men surrounded them. The men reached into the victims’ pockets and grabbed a Blackberry cell phone, cash, and cigarettes.

When one of the victims struggled and tried to hold on to his phone, one of the robbers swung at him several times, but missed. The group of robbers then walked off with $60 in cash, cigarettes, and the phone.

A few minutes later, the report says one of the robbers returned and offered to sell the victim his phone for $10. The victim then reminded the man that he had taken all of his cash.

Police searched the area following the robbery but were unable to find any of the suspects.
