LORAIN — A Lorain man said he was robbed by a woman he met at Big Lots after she found out where he lived.
Harold Tomaszewski told police he was walking to his vehicle after shopping at the store Tuesday when a woman approached him and asked if he needed company and wanted her to ride home with him.
Tomaszewski said he told the woman he did not and drove home.
Later that evening, at approximately 11 p.m., Tomaszewski’s door bell rang and he found the woman from Big Lots standing at the door. Tomaszewski said the woman asked to come in, and when he refused, she pushed him into the house and, after a struggle, went through his pant pockets, taking $100 from his wallet.
The man said the woman then fled from the house, driving off in her vehicle. He described her as a 35- to 45-year-old thin white female, wearing white clothing with gray hair. She was reportedly driving a red four-door larger sedan.
Police said Tomaszewski had a small red mark on his left hand and he complained of neck pain, but he refused medical treatment.
Tomaszewski told police he believed the woman found his address by reading a Lorain water bill, which contained his address, that he left open on the passenger seat of his vehicle.
Police took a water bottle as evidence that Tomaszewski said the woman had left in his home, but police were unable to lift prints from the bottle.
