A woman who tried to sell her iPhone to a 16-year-old in North Little Rock was handed fake bills then punched in the face, she told police.

The 21-year-old Searcy resident told officers she met the teen Sunday in the parking lot at 400 N. Palm St., the listed address for an apartment complex, after arranging the sale on Facebook.

When the 16-year-old gave her four $100 bills, the woman noticed the money "didn't seem right," she told police. Then the teen hit her and ran off, she said.

An officer noted bruising to the woman's left cheek.

Police did not release the teen's name, but no 16-year-olds had been booked into the Pulaski County jail since Sunday, according to an online inmate roster.

    Not to blame the victim but at some point people have to accept responsibility for dumb decisions. When selling something in this manner arrange the exchange at a police station or somewhere with an armed guard, especially if you are female and alone.
