Man likely not burglarized nor irresistible to women

SEATTLE -- A psychology major in North Seattle who is able to pick up women at will was burglarized last week despite an intricate system of hiding places for his wallet. Or, maybe he just really likes filing false police reports.

According to the Seattle Police Department report for the incident, the man went to a bar near North 105th Street and Aurora Avenue North around 11 p.m. May 1 in order to pick up a woman, a feat he was able to accomplish in only 20 minutes.

He and the woman then drove around Seattle for a while before going back to his apartment in the 9400 block of Ravenna Avenue Northeast around 1 a.m.

The man told officers the woman was acting strange, which he was able to deduce because he has a major in psychology. Also, she was allegedly grabbing things from around his apartment and putting them into a grocery bag.

He took the bag away from her, and they decided to drive around some more since he no longer wanted her in his apartment. He ditched her a short time later because she kept acting stranger and stranger, according to the report.

The man told officers he went back to his apartment alone around 7:30 a.m. and went to sleep. When he woke up around 6:30 p.m., he discovered he'd been burglarized.

He told officers his wallet was stolen, as were his car keys and car.

According to the report, there was no sign of forced entry into the apartment. And, officers have been warned not to take stolen-vehicle reports from the man.

The man was very animated and excited while describing the burglary and told officers he has all sorts of secret places in his apartment where he hides his wallet. He did not know how the woman, who he denied was a prostitute, would have found the wallet.

According to the report, the items the man was showing officers as evidence of the burglary, including a wine glass, picture frames and a crowbar outside the door, appeared to have been staged for their benefit.

The man was informed false reporting is a crime.
