Welcomed and watched.
When I was walking around in the afternoon – probably around 4pm – a guy approached me and asked to use my phone. He told me he had just been robbed. I said no; I didn't actually add voice calls to my outrageously expensive roaming bundle, and thought that this could just be a ploy to grab my outrageously expensive cell phone and run.
He then headed down the block to talk to the occupants of the two nearby police cruisers.
Not a ploy.
