‘Nice guy’ swipes iPhone from Metropolis trick

image When a trick turns into a theft, you really have to wonder if it was such a bright idea to invite that young guy chatting you up at Taco Mac back to your upscale Atlanta condo after midnight for drinks. But that’s what happened on Aug. 17 when a 48-year-old condo dweller, flattered by the attention from a twentysomething guy, asked to move their conversation from the Peachtree Street restaurant to his Metropolis condo next door. After all, “CJ” approached him and struck up a conversation, so he must be a nice guy. Right? Right. “Under the impression [that] suspect CJ was a ‘nice guy,’ the victim invited CJ to his home for drinks, which he indicates was [a] very bad idea that he’s fully aware of,” according to an incident report from the Atlanta Police Department. You think? Once inside, the pair chatted one another up for about 90 minutes before those cocktails hit bottom. So the condo dweller politely – remember, everyone here is a nice guy – excused himself to visit the restroom. When he returned, CJ also hit the head before returning and informing the condo dweller that he had to go. Now. Wait. More than an hour of chatting, drinks and no pants hit the floor? This booty call isn’t going well at all. “The suspect then asked the victim to walk him out, and as a nice gesture, with a sense of comfort the victim obliged to do so,” according to the report. Aww, no sex but maybe there’s romance budding here? But surprise, there’s a catch. “When the victim returned back to his condo, he noticed his AT&T black Apple iPhone was missing. After searching the immediate area for his cellphone, the victim instantly had his phone service stopped as well as confirmed his cell phone stolen,” according to the report. At least he didn’t lose his pants and underwear, too. But the condo dweller didn’t seem too concerned about a booty call going badly. He left the country for a two-week vacation.
