A Robber Forced a Guy to Let Him Use the Bathroom Before Stealing His Car
A guy was driving home in Berkeley, California last week, and as he was parking, a 25-year-old man named Joseph Skyler popped out from behind the apartment building with a gun. Joseph said he was going to take the car, but first, he really needed to use the bathroom. So he forced the guy to take him up to his apartment, and let him have a few minutes with the toilet. The guy lives with his grandma, and she happened to be in the bathroom at the time. So Joseph forced her out, and made the guy stand in there with him while he did his business. On the bright side, he did let the guy turn around. And once he was done, he headed back downstairs and drove off in the car. The cops tracked him down about an hour later, and he was arrested for robbery and carjacking. He also randomly had his puppy with him, so the cops took it to animal control. Get more here.
