When you have your head up your ass…

A woman walking and holding her phone in Los Angeles last month didn’t notice the man approaching her from behind — a man who was about to attack her, yank her into an alley and try to rob her, according to police.

Police said the woman was downtown near the corner of Flower and 11th streets when the man grabbed her and pulled her into the alleyway at about 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 28, City News Service reports. The man was apparently trying to take the woman’s phone and purse.

“This person was so distracted with her phone she did not see the suspect run up on her,” police from the city’s Central Area wrote in a Twitter post Tuesday, which had been retweeted more than 400 times by Wednesday afternoon.
