When a Jersey City woman ignored the advances of a man trying to chat with her on a street, he got angry and robbed her instead.
Officers dispatched to the scene spoke to the 22-year-old Paterson woman who said her $500 phone was just taken, reports said.
The victim said she was walking to a friend’s home when a man approached her from behind saying “What’s up, girl? Let me talk to you for a minute,” reports said.
She ignored the man who said “Come on girl, don’t be like that,” reports said, adding that he gave his name and said “I’m from around here. Let’s talk.”
The woman said she began running because the robber “creeped her out,” but he chased her down, snatched the cell phone from her hand and said “I got your phone (expletive), what’s up now?”
The man then fled down the street, where the victim lost sight of him, reports said, adding that police have identified a suspect in the case.
