He just wanted to expand his social circle.
You heard it here first, folks. A 28-year-old man, Riley Allen Mullins, suspected of robbing a woman tried to friend her on Facebook the next day.
He approached a woman sitting alone at a ferry terminal with headphones in. He struck her from behind, grabbed her purse and her iPod. The only thing she was able to notice about the man was a tattoo of a triangle on his neck.
The following day, the woman had a friend request. Low and behold, it was the man who had robbed her. She recognized his triangle neck tattoo. In fact, investigators say he had a profile picture perfectly displaying his triangle neck tattoo.
Maybe he just robbed her because he wanted to make a new Facebook friend.
