A man was arrested in central China’s Hubei Province after an early morning robbery.

Surveillance video shows the man acting intimately towards a woman in Yichang City at around 4:30 am on Feb. 18.

“The two are not a couple. The woman in red is surnamed Ge, and the man is a robber.”

About 50 minutes ago, the man was seen covering the woman’s mouth, and dragging her into a dark alley.

Ge had to give up her iPhone to the man, as she could find no one for help on the empty street.

“The robber asked Ge to give him her money. Ge gave him her purse. There was not much money. So the man asked Ge to have a stroll with him.”

While passing a bank, the man asked Ge to withdraw 400 Yuan, or about 65 U.S. dollars, and give him the money.

“The robber then told the woman not to walk on dark streets alone at night. He said he wanted to console the woman so that she would not call the police.”

But Ge did call the police after returning home. The man was arrested at a cyber cafe several days later.
