Man robs Ann Arbor woman of her cell phone
A 19-year-old Ann Arbor woman took out her phone to enter the number of a man she was talking to early Saturday morning when he took the phone and escaped into a waiting car.
The robbery was reported at about 2:35 a.m. Saturday and occurred in the 500 block of East William Street, according to Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush. The man had approached the woman and told her she looked like someone he knew, but Bush said the woman ignored him and kept walking.
The man told the woman she should call him sometime and she took out her phone to enter his number, Bush said. It was at that moment the man grabbed the phone from her and ran to a black Dodge Charger, which then drove away, she said.
The woman was not injured, Bush said. The phone was valued at about $200.
The man is described as black, in his early 20s, about 5-feet-5 inches tall, wearing a baseball hat, a navy hooded sweatshirt, jeans and gym shoes, Bush said.
