Dummy! Man Mugs Woman, Sends Her Facebook Friend Request.

Posted June 3rd, 2014 @ 9:25am

He doesn't appear to be the sharpest tool in the shed. A Washington man wasn't satisfied with stealing a stranger's purse and iPad, he also wanted to steal her heart -- so he sent her a Facebook friend request the day after the mugging!

Riley Allen Mullins allegedly hit the victim over the head and snatched her possessions, but not before she got a good look at his face and the distinctive tattoo on his neck.


She gave cops a good description of Mullins, but the deputies' job got a lot easier when he reached out to her less than 24 hours later, asking to be Facebook friends. She alerted the police to Mullins's request, and they quickly took him into custody on charges of robbery and assault.
