A group of ladies robbed a modern day George Costanza who was taking pictures of the water on Kent Ave last week. The group was able to remove him his belongings by flirting with him and then taking off in a cab. From Brooklyn Paper:
A gang of women stole a man’s bag after stopping to flirt with him on N. Fourth Street on Sept. 20, police stated.
The victim said he was taking pictures of the East River from the corner of Kent Avenue at 3:40 pm when the ladies came up to shoot the breeze.
Out of the corner of his eye, he saw one of the tricksters grab his camera bag, then jump into a cab, officers reported. The bag contained his Nikon tripod, wallet, book, and cash, a report recounts.
