Two good Samaritans turned out to be thieves in one woman’s experience.
The victim was about to board a cab outside a North 5th Street building on the morning of August 14.
Two men from the building offered to help the woman load her bicycle into the cab.
While she was on her way in the cab, she noticed her wallet was missing.
She went back to the building, and noticed one of the men still there and confronted him. He denied taking anything and became aggressive.
Construction workers from a nearby project held him down as he attempted to escape, and victim was able to fish out her wallet from his pocket, but it was missing $1,300 in cash.
An argument between two former lovers turned violent inside a Commercial Street apartment on the afternoon of August 9.
The woman said her ex boyfriend attacked her in the midst of a verbal argument.
He chocked, slapped, and pulled her hair causing her substantial pain, redness, and swelling to neck and face area.
