Note to all would-be criminals: If you rob a person and you want to get away with it, never – and I repeat – NEVER try to date your victim:
Police said they arrested a suspected robber on Sunday after he returned to his victim’s home to ask her out on a date.
According to investigators, Stephfon Bennett was one of three men who robbed a couple on the city’s north side late Sunday night, 10TV News reported.
Less than two hours after the robbery, police said that Bennett, 20, returned to the home and asked the woman out.
“We are not exactly sure what he was thinking at the time,” said Columbus police Sgt. Sean Laird. “She recognized him right away when he returned and was able to have her cousin call 911.”
Officers arrived and arrested Bennett in front of the house, police said.
He faces aggravated robbery charges.
The other two men suspected of breaking into the home remained at-large.
