Jacksonville man arrested for stealing purse of man he met for sex


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Jai Nigel Robinson, 19, of Jacksonville, was arrested late last night and charged with stealing a purse valued at $1,330.

At about 9:40 p.m. last night, Robinson was reportedly in a hotel room at a hotel off SW 34th Street; he and the victim had reportedly met with the intention to engage in sexual activity. Robinson allegedly tried to take the victim’s purse, which was valued at $1,330, but put it down after the victim told him to give it back. Later, while the victim was undressing, Robinson allegedly snatched the purse, ran out the door, and left the hotel in a vehicle.

The victim reportedly sent Robinson a text saying he’d called the police, and Robinson reportedly sent a text saying it was a “prank.” He returned the purse while police were present.

Post Miranda, Robinson reportedly admitted taking the purse and leaving the property but maintained that he did it “as a prank.” Robinson has been charged with grand theft over $750; he has no criminal record and was released on his own recognizance.

  • Clearly he changed his mind after butt play had been initiated ☺️☺️.. changed his mind and ran out with the purse 👛.. lmfao 😁😁.. this guy lets his neck introduce first

  • This is what city leadership has invited into our homes.

    Do you really want Ward, Arreola, Hayes-Santos or any of the rest to continue holding the keys?

    Remember that this November.

  • LMAO these guys have got to pick the worst tattoo artist in town. lmmfao he met a guy for sex and then stole the guys purse! If that ain’t some gay boy gangsta shyt i don’t know what is. guess he’s out the closet now! 🤣🤣🤣

  • A real sweetheart. I wonder where he gets his hair done, perhaps a local septic tank service

  • “released on his own recognizance…” He should have been released into a mental hospital, except this were all closed decades ago.

  • I’ll have to blame it on me being a senior citizen, but, just the headline caused me to spit out my morning coffee and change my diaper….

  • If there’s a Dumb and Dumber haircut for black people, this comes pretty close. Take that poor clueless young man to a barber shop, someone.

    • If that’s how he wants to wear his hair then let him. You worried about the wrong thing

      • Hopefully he’ll get a real job and become a valuable long-term employee somewhere. Looking halfway normal would probably help with him getting hired. Then he could buy his own fake Gucci handbag or whatever he wants.

  • The odd thing about this situation is that apparently someone actually wanted to have sex with this creature!
