A brother and sister who claimed they were having sex in a sports bar bathroom were actually trying to steal a television, police said. A woman who had been using the bathroom at Samuel's Sports Bar in Springfield, Massachusetts, on Sunday night heard a man and woman tearing a TV off the wall while she was in a stall.
As they were "stashing" the TV, the woman fled the bathroom and told the manager what she'd witnessed, police said. The manager and another employee locked the suspects inside the women's room and called police around 9 pm
When police arrived, the man and woman inside the bathroom told police that they were simply having sex. Officers questioned them further and learned that they were brother and sister, according to a release from Springfield police. Police learned that a TV had been ripped from the men's room wall as well.
Robert Larrivee, 38, of 84 Nelson Ave., West Springfield, and Amanda Larrivee, 30, of 624 South East 19th Ave., West Springfield, are both charged with larceny over $250. Robert Larrivee was also charged with threat to commit a crime after threatening to beat up the arresting officer, police said. They were arraigned on Monday in Springfield District Court.
