SAN ANTONIO -- A 30-year old woman was arrested Sunday for allegedly trying to steal a man's iPhone.

According to the suspect's arrest warrant, Michelle Sherrod and a male friend were meeting up with the victim after answering his Craigslist ad to sell his phone.

Sherrod and a male friend met up with the victim in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant on the city's northeast side.

The victim said he was showing the couple the phone while they sat in a car. At one point the victim said the female driver grabbed his hand and phone and drove off. He was dragged a few feet before he was able to pull himself free. He still had the phone but he said the thieves took off with his car keys.

The victim and a witness picked Sherrod out of a photo lineup and identified her as the woman driving the car, according to the arrest warrant.

Sherrod was arrested Sunday and is currently being held in the Bexar County Jail.
