The woman called police after ‘recognising him from his profile picture’

An optimistic robber friend requested his alleged victim on Facebook the day after he attacked her, according to police.

Riley Allen Mullins, 28, was identified by the woman as her possible attacker after she recognised him from his profile picture, the Kitsap Sun reported.

He has been charged with attacking the woman as she waited at a ferry terminal in Washington on Tuesday.

She was sitting at the Bremerton terminal listening to music through headphones when she was hit in the head from behind, authorities said.

After being struck, a man grabbed her iPod and purse and ran away. She did not recognise the man but noticed a tattoo of a triangle on his neck during the attack.

The next day, the woman received a Facebook friend request and thought she recognised the sender as the man who robbed her.

Police confirmed the Facebook account belonged to Mullins and said his picture showed the triangular neck tattoo.

The woman is not thought to have accepted his request.
