THREATENED WITH A WEAPON / ROBBERY

Saturday September 29th at 9:30pm

Man came up to a Pro and asked he could trade a 40 stone for her service. When the Pro asked for the payment upfront the man said, “No – I did that and the chick smoked it, got stuck, and couldn’t do the job. I was out of a 40 stone that I could have sold for $60 or $70 bucks.” The man then reached down (as if he was going to pull out the stone from his sock) and reached for a weapon could have been a knife as it was a long silvery metal object and threatened to physically and sexually assault her. At this point the Pro got up and ran, but as she was running the man was still able to grab her purse. He couldn’t chase her much further though, as his pants were pulled down. The Pro managed to escape (without her purse), and is worried she or other Pro’s might see him. The Pro believes that this man wants to hurt women – badly.  Apparently other Pro’s have seen this man and say that he’s very abusive, aggressive and strong, and often goes for the throat and face when attacking. He approaches Pro’s and asks them how business is going, and if they are looking for dope. After he’s done doing a blast he gets really crazy and loses his temper.
