The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

An Ohio man who robbed a couple at gunpoint was arrested when he returned to ask his female victim for a date, the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Stephfon Bennett, 20, together with two other men, relieved Daniel Martinez Batista and Diana Martinez of their wallets outside their Columbus apartment on Saturday night.

A neighbour threatened the trio of miscreants, who legged it. However, less than two hours later, Bennett returned to the address to ask Ms Martinez if she fancied hooking up.

Columbus police Sgt Shaun Laird explained to WBNS-TV: "She recognized him right away when he returned, and was able to have her cousin call 911."

Within two minutes, Bennet was in custody, and now finds himself languishing dateless in Franklin County jail on $100k bail.

Sgt Laird admitted: "We are not exactly sure what he was thinking at the time." ®
