Woman accused of stealing watches, cash from men in South Florida

Victim confronts Yomna Fouad, 21, outside Rockwell nightclub, police say

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – A woman was arrested Saturday after a man she'd robbed spotted her outside a Miami Beach nightclub, authorities said.

She appeared in court Monday, where she was ordered held in lieu of a $50,000 bond.

According to an arrest warrant, the victim saw Yomna Fouad, 21, outside the Rockwell nightclub about 3 a.m. Saturday and approached her.

Police were called and Fouad was arrested on charges of grand theft and using fraudulent identification.

According to police, Fouad met the man outside Dream nightclub on Miami Beach and went home with him.

"She said we should go back to my place and I said, 'OK, sure,'" the man, who did not want to be identified, said about the March encounter. 

The man told detectives that Fouad, who told him her name was Amina, massaged his back and said that it appeared that she was trying to make him fall asleep.

The man told her to stop massaging him and they had sex before falling asleep, an arrest report said.

Police said the man woke up to find Fouad gone, along with his clothing, cash and jewelry, including a Rolex watch. The total loss was about $32,000.

"I woke up drugged, not knowing what happened, and all my stuff was gone," the man told Local 10 News reporter Liane Morejon.

The victim said Fouad was captured on surveillance video leaving his home, wearing his shirt and carrying out his belongings.

He said he recognized her outside of Rockwell by the tattoos on her hands.

"It's like a henna-type tattoo," he said. "I told the security and they held her until police arrived."

Detectives tied Fouad to another robbery in May 2016.

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.

Fouad is also accused of stealing an $87,000 Audemars Piguet watch in September 2016 from a man who she had met at the Matador restaurant on Miami Beach.

Authorities said Fouad is from Columbia, South Carolina, and identified her job title in the arrest reports as “prostitute.”

She is also accused of similar robberies throughout the East Coast.
