Another day, another dumb criminal busted on Facebook.

This time, a man in Washington had the nerve to try and add his victim on Facebook as a friend.

The victim was sitting at the Bremerton ferry terminal when she was hit in the back of the head as a man grabbed her purse and her iPod and ran.

The victim didn't see the robber's face, but she did notice a distinct triangle tattoo on the back of his neck.

The next day, the woman had a strange friend request from a man with the exact same tattoo.

He was later arrested and has been charged with second-degree robbery.
