Man Robbed While Napping During Movie

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee December 11, 2009

A man approached an officer near the Meridian 16 theater last week and said he'd been robbed while napping in his seat, a police report says.

The man told police he'd met another man on the street earlier in the evening, and the two had gone to a movie at the Meridian 16.

During the movie, the report says, the man fell asleep in his chair. He woke up when the man he'd met earlier that evening punched him in the face and took his wallet.

The man reported that the attack happened at about 8:00 p.m. and said he'd had his ID, ATM card and $170 in cash stolen.

The report doesn't say which movie the men went to see. Best guess in the comments wins a no-prize.
