Wel, something's clearly amiss with this dude. Not sure what he was planning to do with those heels.

Not very sensible for a 22 year old girl to be showing single men around apartments; unfortunately a sign of the times in which we live.

I'm not sure about the slap, but possibly the smartphone and shoe grab was to improve his chances of escape.
