A man told police he stole another man's wallet because he wouldn't give him money after they had sex.

Police arrested 22-year-old Edgar Silva on an armed robbery charge last Friday.

The victim told police he met Silva in the parking lot of a Dollar General store on SW 10th Street and agreed to give him a ride. The victim said Silva asked him to pull over on SW 12th Avenue where he asked him for money. The driver refused. The victim told police Silva pulled a knife on him and grabbed his wallet. It had $500 in cash, debit cards and his ID from El Salvador.

The driver told police he was not there to buy drugs from Silva, according to the report.

Two days later, police arrested Silva who admitted to stealing the man's wallet. Silva told police the driver would not give him money after they had sex, according to the arrest report.

Silva remains jailed on a $10,000 bond.
