    Robbery > punched in face and bike stolen !

    Herald Article

    Good deed punished: A 47-year-old man told police he was approached by a woman who asked him to walk with her because she felt ''unsafe.'' He said he got off his red Rally bicycle about 11:45 p.m. March 28 and escorted her from the corner of Lincoln Street and U.S. 1 to the 1900 block of Lincoln Street, where a man jumped out of the bushes, punched him twice in the face and stole the bike. He valued the bike at $800.

    :shock:

    No good deed goes unpunished.

    Similar setup like this happened to me a few years ago.

    A girl on roller blades and a short skirt was skating along the middle of the street in the morning on a Saturday in a warehouse district.... She grabs my bars and asks for "help"... not sure exactly what kind of help she needed so I tried to ask her and she was just rambling with nonsensical stories and then she slammed herself ass-first into the road, rashing herself up and getting a bloody elbow/knees...etc...

    Then a guy in car pulls up and asks her whats up and she gets in the car .... I left the scene real fast because I could smell a setup !!!!!

    "He tried to **** me.." was most likely what she claimed to the police once she got into the guys car...

    Who knows what happened, I was long gone !!!!!

    Definitely a set-up.

    There's a little sense of karmic justice when one person cons another by appealing to greed or self interest, but a deep sense of disappointment when the con appeals to human decency.

    However, at least the con shows an optimism about human nature....
