A man was detained Monday for allegedly demanding $50 to return a woman's cell phone after she claimed to have lost it, Colorado Springs police said.

The woman told police that when she called and texted her phone, a man replied and agreed to give the phone back to her, but only if she gave him $50.

A police officer waited in the vehicle with the woman and a second officer watched from a marker cruiser on the 700 block of South Academy Boulevard, where she had agreed to meet the man and make the exchange, police said.

Jason Domingue, 42, allegedly approached the victim's car about 10:30 p.m. and asked her for the cash in exchange for the phone, police said.

Police detained Domingue without incident and served him a summons for theft, according to police reports.
