Man loses cellphone, but just wants a date

He wants these lady robbers arrested — apparently so he can ask them on a date.

The victim of a cellphone theft in the Mission Terrace neighborhood last weekend told police that he was unable to resist “two very good looking” female crooks who had asked for directions, even though they were about to rob him.

The man said he was waiting for friends to pick him up about 6:15 a.m. Saturday when the irresistible ladies pulled up in a car, according to police. They not only asked for directions, the victim said, but one of the sirens also wanted to borrow his cellphone “because her phone had died.”

“The victim started dialing the number for the suspect when all of the sudden the suspect grabbed the phone out of the victim’s hand and drove off,” police said.

When interviewed by police, the victim was quoted as saying, “I can identify them two fine ladies.”

The cellphone was worth $600, police said.

No arrests have been reported.
