It was the bad date heard round North Brooklyn. A woman fell prey to the boringness of either her date or the movie they went to see (or both) by allowing herself to doze off long enough for him to take her wallet, among other personal and valuable possessions. But then, isn’t this always a risk of going on a Tinder date?
32-year-old Harriet Suscept, who shouldn’t be punished just because she lives in The Edge condo, was The Movie Theater Bandit’s first Tinder date victim. Whether his intentions all along were to watch her fall asleep and steal her precious Louis Vuitton pocketbook remains unclear. What is clear, however, is that he continued the con the following week at Bushwick’s own Syndicated.
Unfortunately for The Movie Theater Bandit, the moment he tried to withdraw money from his Bushwick date’s account, he discovered it was already overdrawn. He might want to stick with heists strictly at Williamsburg Cinemas and Nitehawk after a hard lesson learned. After all, what kind of clientele do you expect to frequent a theater that only charges three dollars per ticket and essentially just plays DVDs on a giant screen?
