MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina police say a man flirted with a female cab driver and even sent her a text message photo of himself before robbing her. 

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports the driver turned over her money Sunday and wasn't hurt. 

Police say a man identifying himself as Patrick exchanged phone numbers with a woman Saturday night while she was in her taxicab. He called and flirted with her over two hours, even sending a text message with his photograph and asking for one in return. 

The man called the cabbie and requested a ride.  

Police say the man later got into the front seat of the taxi, pulled out a closed pocket knife and demanded money before running away.
