Chicago - A US robber who went back to the scene of the crime to ask his victim out on a date was arrested after the woman chatted with him while her cousin called police.
Diana Martinez was parked in front of her Columbus, Ohio, apartment when three men pointed a gun at her head and stole her purse and her friend's wallet, local media report.
Martinez screamed and hit one of the men with her car door. They fled when a nearby neighbour threatened them.
But less than an hour later, Martinez spotted one of the men leaning against a banister overlooking the parking lot.

Then he asked her out.
"We are not exactly sure what he was thinking at the time," said Columbus police Sgt Sean Laird.
Stephfon Bennett, 20, was charged with aggravated robbery, the station reported. The other two men remain at large.
