Ithaca (WSYR-TV) – Ithaca Police arrested two people on Thursday night after they allegedly robbed a man who asked them for directions.
According to police, the victim said that he initially asked Kimberly Larking and Leaddice Daniels where he could buy cigarettes.
After they walked to the store with him, the victim says he asked for directions to Ithaca’s north side.
The victim told police that the pair walked with him toward a Holiday Inn and, once they were near the parking lot, the male suspect pushed him up against the wall while the female suspect rifled through his pockets and took his wallet.
Police say the victim positively identified Larking and Daniels.
After their arraignment, the pair were taken to Tompkins County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.
They are scheduled to return to court on April 26.
