Yomna Fouad, a 21-year-old Florida prostitute, told a judge that she seduced men after meeting them in Miami clubs and would then rob them of their valuables.
Fouad was taken into custody by Miami-Dade Police after she was seen outside of Miami Beach’s Rockwell nightclub by one of her alleged victims. After the two began arguing, police arrived at the scene and subsequently arrested her. Fouad is now facing charges of larceny, grand theft, and false identification charges.
Fouad was accused by 31-year-old Alain Rene Galette of stealing his clothing, cash, jewelry, and a Rolex after the two met outside of a nightclub before going back to his residence in March. Galette claims the value of the stolen items is $32,000.
Galette claimed that he woke up ‘drugged, not knowing what was going on, and all of [his] stuff missing.’ Furthermore, surveillance footage at Gallette’s building shows Galette and Fouad entering his building, and then Fouad later leaving alone with his personal items.
This is not the first time Fouad has been involved in this sort of crime, as detectives tied Fouad to a May 2016 robbery.
According to an arrest report, Fouad and a friend met the victim at LIV nightclub inside the Fontainebleau hotel. Fouad told the man her name was Rebecca “Becca” Arias, police said.
Police said the women stayed with the victim at his table until the club closed and the man offered to get a hotel room for the three of them. The women followed the victim to the room and one of them saw him place his $46,000 Rolex watch and $8,000 in cash inside the hotel room safe, the report said.
Police said the victim left the women in the room while he went to his car to get his overnight bag. When he returned, the women were gone.
Furthermore, Fouad, who is from Columbia, South Carolina, is accused of stealing an $87,000 Audemars Piguet watch in September 2016 from a man who she had met at the Matador restaurant in Miami, Florida.
Fouad is suspected of being connected to other similar crimes throughout the east coast, as at least 10 other police departments are currently investigating her. She was ordered to be held in lieu of a $50,000 in court on Monday.
As of Monday, May 1, Fouad remained in custody at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami.
