BENSALEM, Pa. (CBS) — There are two faces Bensalem police want you to see: a couple of female suspects accused of robbing a man on New Year’s Eve and racking up $7,500 worth of purchases on his credit cards.
“When he woke up the next morning, he realized his credit card, wallet, phone, everything had been stolen,” said Fred Harran, Bensalem Township’s Director of Public Safety.
The man told police he met two women at a bar in Manayunk but doesn’t remember what happened next until he woke up the next morning at a Holiday Inn in Bensalem.
“Moral of the story is you’re picking up two strangers you don’t know and bring them back to a hotel room, that’s not the most wisest move you can do,” Harran said.
Investigators later tracked down multiple purchases made with the victim’s credit card, including one at a Walmart in Hamilton, New Jersey, and surveillance video captured the women using that card again at a liquor store in Trenton.
“Needless to say the man is a victim and we want to find the two folks responsible for this crime,” Harran said.
Harran adds that while this is the first report received about these women, there may be other victims.
“My guess is it’s not their first day ripping some guy off,” he said.
Police say the suspects appear to be between the ages of 25 and 30. If you recognize these women, call Bensalem Police at 215-633-3719.
