Gwinnett County police are trying to identify a woman who stole an iPhone she had arranged to purchase from a Roswell man.
The sale had been planned to occur at a Sherwin-Williams paint store in Peachtree Corners. The victim connected with the woman on LetGo, an app where people sell used goods, and they had agreed on a price of $790 for the phone, according to police.
When the woman met the man at the store, she walked up to him, snatched the phone and ran away, police said. The man chased after her, but lost her when she entered a housing complex, according to a police report. The man also suspected the woman may have had a weapon because of her unspecified “mannerisms” and because of the way she said “don’t follow me,” the police report says.
The woman was described as 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighing about 125 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes, and was wearing a “dark colored army-style jacket” and blue jeans. The woman told the victim her mother worked at North Fulton Hospital, but police are unsure whether that is true.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Gwinnett County detectives at 770-513-5300 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477. Crime Stoppers tips may be rewarded with up to $2,000 if they lead to an arrest or indictment.
