A Springfield man said he was walking home from a gas station when a woman he claimed was a prostitute jumped on his back and robbed him of his belongings.
A police report says the woman, only identified to the man as a prostitute named Lisa, asked the man for money before he went into the Sunoco gas station on Selma Road.
The report says when he told her no and to ‘get out of here,’ she followed him into the gas station and asked him to buy her cigarettes and something to drink.
“(The man) agreed and then he told her that would be all that he would help her out with,” the report continues on to say.
The man left the gas station and was walking on Tibbetts Avenue when the woman jumped on his back and the man fell to the ground, according to the report.
The report says the woman went through the man’s pockets and took $40 in cash and an electronic tablet.
Officers checked the area, but couldn’t find the woman anywhere.
