This is a crime story! There's apparently a new breed of criminal, a foul and despicable creature, who employs a hug and the words "I love you" to distract his victims, thereby allowing an accomplice to swiftly steal their most valuable possessions! This person and his friend have been dubbed the "I Love You" Bandits, and they recently stole an iPhone from a woman in Brooklyn with this very technique. They are vile indeed. They may be roaming the streets of your neighborhood. And they do not love you!
Do not be caught off guard!
