An Irving woman was scared and trapped upside down in her vehicle after her car rolled three times during an accident. If this wasn’t traumatic enough, she was then robbed by a man posing as a Good Samaritan.
Kimberly Smith was driving in Irving, Texas, on the morning of Sept. 27 when her car rolled over three times. But according to her brother, Joshua Smith, that may have not been the worse part.
Joshua took to Facebook to share the story of how a “tall, skinny black male in his 30’s” approached his sister while she was trapped upside down in the vehicle. He claims the man said he was going to help Kimberly, but instead robbed her and drove off.
The Facebook post went viral and drew attention to this horrific act.
Joshua said in his post that a man stopped to “help” his sister, and even found her purse for her. He then claimed he was going to call 911.
Terrified Kimberly begged the man to stay with her until help arrived. He promised he would stay with her, but instead the man got in his truck and drove away–taking Kimberly’s wallet, ID, money, and credit cards with him.
Suffering from only cuts and bruises, Kimberly was luckily able to get out of her car and look for help by the side of the road. Another stranger stopped and called 911 for her.
Joshua’s Facebook post expressed his disgust for the man who robbed his sister.
“If anybody has a ‘friend’ that is bragging about robbing some girl after she flipped her car this morning, please be a real friend and let us know. He is described as a tall, skinny black male, in his 30’s, driving a red pickup truck.”
According to reports, police were able to arrest the two people accused of pretending to be good Samaritans and robbing a crash victim in Irving.
According to Irving police, a 48-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman were arrested Thursday after being tracked to an extended stay hotel in Dallas.
