Police Nab Robbery Suspect After He Poses for Selfie with 'Hot' Victim
Victor Almanza-Martinez, 19, also allegedly exchanged Snapchat info with the victim
A man who allegedly robbed four women at gunpoint and then took a Snapchat selfie with one of the victims has been arrested, PEOPLE confirms.
Victor Almanza-Martinez, 19, was booked into Monterey County Jail in California last Wednesday on charges of robbery, kidnapping, conspiracy to commit a crime, vehicle theft and gang enhancements.
Authorities believe that the teen was one of three men who allegedly participated in an armed robbery last week in which the four victims had their car and other possessions taken at gunpoint, the Associated Press reports.
During the robbery, Almanza-Martinez allegedly found one of the victims so “hot” that he asked for a selfie with her. The two exchanged Snapchat info and posed for a picture. That picture led police straight to Almanza-Martinez, according to NBC News.
