2 Arrested in Irving ‘Good Samaritan' Robbery

Irving police say a man and woman are under arrest after a crash victim said she was robbed by a person pretending to be a good Samaritan.

Kimberly Smith was headed home on Sunday morning when she said she was cut off by another driver on the exit ramp off Texas Highway 114 near Belt Line Road.

Smith swerved and her car rolled.

Smith crawled out of her mangled Ford Focus and a man handed over her purse, saying he was going to call for help, police said.

The man then got into a pickup truck and drove away, leaving Smith stranded on the side of the road.

She then discovered that her wallet, containing her driver license, credit cards, cash and other items, had been stolen.

Police said Thursday they arrested Shakir Sharrieff and Cortney Anne Martin in connection to the fraudulent use of Smith's credit card. A search of their Dallas motel room yielded some of Smith's stolen property, police said.

Sharrieff is charged with theft under $750 and Martin is charged with credit card abuse, police said.

Both were booked into the Irving City Jail.
