Woman fakes heart attack, robs Good Samaritan

Posted: Updated:

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. (CBS NEWS)  - A Good Samaritan came across a very "bad Samaritan" when the former tried to help a woman on the side of the road in southern New Jersey.

According to CBS Philly, a Moorestown man - aka the Good Samaritan - saw a woman - aka the bad Samaritan - stopped along Route 38, clutching her chest.

She said she was having a heart attack. He offered to help.

The Good Samaritan told the woman to "please have a seat inside his car...he would call for medical attention to respond...to where they were. When he went to look for his cell phone, she then all of a sudden said that she was fine and she exited his vehicle," says Mount Laurel Police Lieutenant Judy Lynn Schiavone.

A little later on, the man - the Good Samaritan - discovered that the woman took $60 dollars out of his car (making her the bad Samaritan). CBS Philly reports police say they have little to go on, except for a minimal description of the alleged thief - a thin, white woman about 55-years-old (who may be faking a heart attack?)

Lt. Schiavone says she's never heard of a robbery pulled off quite like this one.
