If you’re a man, and you’re planning on hanging out in Buffalo, NY (how ‘bout those Sabres? I hear it’s their year), you might want to avoid drinking in the Chippewa Street area and you’d be advised to keep your eyes peeled, lest you become another victim of the city’s notorious “Hugging Bandit.”
Buffalo police say that several men have fallen victim to the 200-plus-pound woman, who approaches especially drunk men as they’re leaving the bars and propositions them for sex, then wraps them in a monstrous, “Superstar” Billy Graham-style bear hug and steals their wallets.
According to the police, the woman usually strikes between the hours of 2 and 4 a.m. and uses any credit cards she swipes within hours of stealing them.
TheFeed considers this Exhibit A in the case against Fat Girls Need Lovin’, Too.
Buffalonians (???), you have been warned.
