    Not the best way to get a date

    A man suspected of robbing a North Side woman apparently couldn't resist returning to her home to ask for a date.

    Stephfon Bennett, 20, didn't succeed in his quest, authorities say. Bennett is in the Franklin County jail, charged with aggravated robbery. Bond has been set at $100,000.

    Daniel Martinez Batista and Diana Martinez were robbed at gunpoint by three men at 10:40 p.m. Saturday in a parking lot outside an apartment on Parkville Court, a Columbus police report said.

    The three robbers fled when a neighbor threatened them. Batista's wallet was stolen, and Martinez's purse was taken, the report said.

    Less than two hours later, one of the three robbers returned to where Martinez lives to ask her out, police said.

    "We are not exactly sure what he was thinking at the time," Columbus police Sgt. Shaun Laird told WBNS-TV (Channel 10).

    "She recognized him right away when he returned, and was able to have her cousin call 911."

    Police arrived within minutes and arrested Bennett.

    Police are looking for two other men who they believe participated in the robbery.

    Now that's smooth.

    Well, he's a guy, returning to ask a girl out, so I think it's pretty obvious what he was "thinking."

    Gotta see pictures to see if this woman was worth returning to the scene of the crime to ask her out.

    Confucius say: Always remove ski mask before returning to crime scene.
