Police: Women lure Wash. robbery victim by grabbing his crotch

SEATTLE -- Here's another one from the "you can't make this stuff up" file: A Seattle man was lured into a robbery by two women using little more than their natural charm and a simple crotch grab, according to the Seattle Police Department.

According to the police report for the incident, the victim is a caretaker and was helping his patient move out of a building in Bitter Lake June 18 when two women pulled up in a blue Ford Bronco and called him over to their car.

The woman in the passenger seat reportedly grabbed the victim's crotch by way of a greeting, which apparently led the three to chatting for a bit and agreeing to meet for coffee the next day.

On June 19, the victim met the women in a parking lot in the 130000 block of Aurora Avenue North and hopped in their car to get coffee. According to the report, once in the victim was in the car the women asked him to cash a check for them.

Despite the victim pointing out his bank a few blocks north on Aurora, the women proceeded to drive him all the way to Mukilteo under the guise of looking for a different branch, according to the report.

Eventually, the women reportedly ended up just driving back to the branch on Aurora, pulling into a parking lot nearby when the victim complained to them he was missing work.

According to the report, one of the women started asking the victim about his debit card and PIN number and then tried to steal his wallet when he said he didn't have one. Unable to steal the victim's wallet, the woman reportedly grabbed his cellphone out of his jacket instead.

While the women refused to return the victim's cellphone, they were nice enough to point out some change he had left on the backseat when he got out of the car.

After the victim retrieved his change, the car sped out of the parking lot.
