MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina police say a man flirted with a female cab driver and even sent her a text message photo of himself before robbing her.
The driver turned over her money Sunday and wasn't hurt.
Police say a man identifying himself as Patrick exchanged phone numbers with a woman Saturday night while she was in her taxicab. He called and flirted with her over two hours, even sending a text message with his photograph and asking for one in return.
The man called the cabbie and requested a ride.
Police say the man later got into the front seat of the taxi, pulled out a closed pocket knife and demanded money before running away.
