A man with his trousers around his ankles had his mobile phone stolen by a woman after they got ‘amorous’ in an alleyway. Police said she ‘ran off laughing’, leaving him undressed in Manchester city centre. A theft investigation is now underway after the incident was reported to police by the victim, who had met the woman earlier in a nearby bar.
A police spokesman said: “We are highlighting the incident not to further embarrass the victim, but as a reminder to others.
Even in the height of passion, it’s important to keep an eye on your valuables.”
The man, who hasn’t been named, called police himself to report the theft.
He told officers that they ended up in an alleyway off Portland Street in the early hours of Sunday.
Police said he remembered that his mobile phone was inside one of the pockets of his trousers. He reported being ‘intimate’ with the woman in the alley, with his trousers pulled down, when she ran off laughing, the spokesman added.
He then discovered that his mobile phone was missing, and told police that he suspected her of stealing it.
In a Tweet, GMP’s Manchester city centre division issued a warning.
Officers said: “Beware; Victim reports met woman in bar, ends up in alley getting amorous & while trousers round ankles she ran off with his phone laughing.”
No arrests have been made as yet. No further details or descriptions have been released.
