Man Posing as Woman in Text Entices Victim to Meet at Hotel Room


A man with a lengthy criminal record including an escape from Iowa Park police several years ago is back in jail, after a strange robbery report over the weekend.

22-year-old David Duggins is charged with aggravated robbery with a $50,000 bond. Police were called about 12:40 Saturday afternoon by a man who said he had been robbed at the Wayfarer Motel that morning.

He said he had gotten texts from his ex-girlfriend and he went there to have sex with her. He said when he got there the ex-girlfriend was asleep and a man named Brandon, her current boyfriend, confronted him and threatened him with a military style knife.

The man said he apologized for texting the woman and offered Brandon cash for gas, but that Brandon ordered him to hand over all his money and he gave him $300. He said his ex- girlfriend was repeatedly screaming to Brandon not to hit him.

The victim says he ran out and walked to the flea market on Holliday and called police. He also told police he realized it wasn't his ex-girlfriend but the man who had been texting him posing as the girlfriend.

Police say Brandon was actually Duggins and later he admitted he texted the victim because he was mad that he had been flirting with the woman. They say he admitted ordering the victim to hand over the money, but it was not robbery because he wasn't holding a weapon and the victim handed it over voluntarily.

Police say they found the knife under the mattress. Duggins has previous charges of injury to a child or elderly person, assault and escape.
