Something about this story out of Athens, Georgia, sounds fishy.
Athens-Clarke County police said they are investigating the reported robbery on Monday of more than $1,300 out of a woman’s bra at a west Athens motel. The 26-year-old woman said the money was snatched by a man who also was staying at Days Inn on North Finley Street, police said. She explained that she kept all her money in her bra because she did not have a bank account, according to police. The robbery was reported by a man who heard the woman screaming from her motel room at about 4:20 p.m. Monday, police said. That man and two others chased after the suspect, who fled from the victim’s room and then ran on North Finley Street toward West Hancock Avenue, police said. One of the men said the suspect was holding a knife and “ran in a way which made him believe he had a gun around his waistline,” according to police. [...] The victim told officers that she had met the suspect two days earlier and that he was staying in a different room at the motel with a woman, police said. On Monday, the suspect knocked on the victim’s door and asked if he could come in for a drink, police said. She allowed him in and were talking over drinks when the man suddenly snatched a wad of bills that was stuffed inside the woman’s bra, according to police. When the suspect tried to run from the room, the victim reportedly tried to detain him by grabbing his legs while screaming for help, police said. The man struck the woman and pushed her to the ground several times, but she continued holding onto his legs, police said. He got away knocking the woman to the ground and causing her to briefly black out, according to police. She said she didn’t know how the man knew she had $1,300 in her bra, unless the money had slipped and he noticed it, police said. She described the suspect as a black male who was about 5-foot-7 and had short hair with a receding hairline, police said. He possibly wore a maroon striped shirt, shorts, and maroon high-top Adidas sneakers. The woman told police that when she previously called the suspect, he answered the phone by identifying himself as “Face,” according to police. [...] The victim told officers that she lived in Augusta, but she had an Athens address when arrested on fraud charges by Madison County authorities in December.We'd like to hear this gentleman's side of the story.
