This robbery suspect apparently disguised himself as his victim.

Police officers responding to an armed robbery in the Bayview district early Wednesday morning had little trouble locating the suspect, as he was reportedly wearing the victim's clothing.

The 25-year-old male victim reported being robbed about midnight in the area of Mendell Street and Hudson Avenue. Two suspects approached him as he was walking home, police said, and one pulled a gun from his waistband while the other took the victim's belongings.

The suspects made off with an iPhone, wallet, T-shirt and pair of shorts, according to Bayview police. They did throw the victim's license to the ground after the victim pleaded for it. However, the victim's phone was equipped with a tracking device that led officers about six blocks away from the crime scene.

Police reportedly located Rico Ivory Walls, 21, at his home in the 1400 block of McKinnon Avenue. He was in possession of the iPhone and wearing the "exact clothing" the victim had said was taken.

Walls was on probation, which gave officers the right to search his home. In it, they reportedly found cocaine and packaging equipment intended for drug distribution.

The other suspect was not found.
