20-year-old David A. Williams of Kansas City, Missouri, was arrested for allegedly robbing and carjacking a man in Independence, Missouri, and shooting his 15-year-old accomplice. Police say that the victim set up a hook-up on Snapchat, but when the victim arrived at the meeting place Williams was said to have robbed the victim with the help of the 15-year-old girl who the victim supposedly set up the date with. However, when the victim tried to flee, Williams opened fire but instead of hitting his victim he hit his accomplice instead, striking her in the arm and leg.
Back in the MySpace days when these robberies happened, I used to say ‘The hot girl from MySpace really doesn’t want you.’ That still stands even today, just replace MySpace with your social media of choice.
While I’m glad this guy was caught, I’m curious if the victim was aware the girl was 15 before the meeting. It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve heard of someone trying to rob or blackmail a creeper thinking they wouldn’t go to police.
