Jump and run

A scoundrel stole a woman’s electronics in a botched deal on Ocean Avenue on Dec. 5.

The victim told police she had arranged to sell game consoles and video games to someone outside a bank near Avenue U.

The two met up, and after the victim gave the reprobate the goods, the lout said that he needed to get his wallet from the car and tried to take off leaving her empty-handed, according to police.

She then jumped on the lawbreaker’s pickup truck and got in the back, after which the rake stopped the car and threatened her to get out of the car, while reaching to his waistband, which showed the black butt end of a firearm, the victim told police.
