A Seattle man who hired an escort to "have fun" told police that she stole $170 from him after she went to her car to fetch some condoms.
The man, who is in his 50s and lives on Whitman Avenue North near Lake Union, had called the escort after spotting an advertisement in the Feb. 21 edition of The Stranger, a police report filed Thursday said.
The woman arrived at his apartment late last month for the rendezvous. He agreed to pay her $150 to "have fun" and $20 to cover her gas.
"At some point into the fun," the woman asked the man whether he had condoms, according to the report.
Upon hearing that he did not, she said she would get some from her car.
As the man waited for her to return, he looked out his window and realized the escort was driving away in a silver car.
Since that night, he has called her "numerous times" to get his money back. "But she has not answered or returned his calls," the report said.
The man even called The Stranger to inform the newspaper of what happened.
The police officer who took the report told the man it is against the law in Seattle and the state of Washington to pay someone for sex.
But the man wanted to file a police report in case the woman "was doing this to more of her customers.
