A woman who was stopped at the Mr. Zip on Apison Pike said she thought nothing of it when a woman asked to borrow her cell phone.
A moment later a dark gray Infiniti backed up and the woman jumped in - without returning the phone.
The victim said the driver was a white male with tattoos on his arms.
The vehicle had Florida tags.

The clerk at the Kangaroo on Shallowford Road said a black male and black female came in early in the morning.
The man selected two 32-ounce beers. However, the clerk told him she could not sell them after 3 a.m.
The man put a $10 bill on the counter and said, "Do what you gotta do."
Then he walked out with the $2.69 in beer.
The female then walked up and asked if the man had left any money. She saw the $10 bill still on the counter and took it as she left.
The couple - and the beer and the $10 bill - departed in a silver Jeep Liberty.

Police patrolling Youngstown Road found a "very, very intoxicated" Jeanette Hanks in company with her ex-husband, Clifford Hanks.
She claimed he had removed $250 from her handbag.
Police said Clifford Hanks, who denied the charge, seemed "lucid and clear-headed."
An officer gave Ms. Hanks a ride home after she said she had no transportation to Tremont Street.
She was accompanied by her pet "Chia-Pug" and some groceries, which included a large bottle of what appeared to be alcohol.
