So what does all this have to do with a robbery? This dude, 18-year-old Victor Almanza-Martinez, and two other men allegedly robbed a group of people at Lover’s Point Park.

The three suspects allegedly robbed a group of four people and then stole their car.

Before fleeing in the stolen vehicle, Pacific Grove Police say Almanza-Martinez posed for a selfie with one of the female victims. Police haven’t released the photo, but here’s a reenactment:


The selfie ended up being a key lead in the arrest of Almanza-Martinez. How did police get it? Almanza-Martinez exchanged Snapchat information with the female victim after he took the selfie.

Once Almanza-Martinez posted the selfie to Snapchat, the victim turned over the photo to police, who promptly arrested him.


Almanza-Martinez has been hit with several charges, including armed robbery, kidnapping and possession of stolen property. He’s being held at Monterey Country Jail on $170,000 bail.

Black Woman Sings Selena Song in Spanish

Watching this woman sing Selena’s “Si Una Vez” will make you smile for an ENTIRE 3:25. Seriously. Everything about her office performance is so f’n amazing. She’s got the chops and the adorable hand gestures, but the best part is probably the fact that she’s filming this in her cube! No shame in the best way possible.

We only have one question: WHO is this woman? We want to see more of her and maybe sing a duet with her.
