Bizarre doesn't even begin to describe a Sunday night incident in St. Paul during which a group of men, all wearing wigs, pushed a woman down on the sidewalk and urinated on her.

SEE ALSO: There were some very weird police calls in St. Paul last weekend

A complaint filed in Ramsey County court says a 31-year-old woman was standing in the 500 block of Farrington Avenue when four men pulled up next to her in a silver-colored car. She initially thought they were women.

"How do we get back to University Avenue?" one of them asked.

When she got closer to answer the question, one of the men allegedly ripped the white iPhone 4 from her hand. The complaint says another man then grabbed her by the hair and pushed her down on the sidewalk. Before he urinated on her, all four pulled her pants down.

The woman told police she feared she was going to be raped. They just laughed. She remembered one of them said, before leaving, "Mitch, you took that white bitch's phone?"

She walked away with a cut on her wrist and a cut above her right eye, according to the complaint.

St. Paul police say they smelled weed as they approached the same car, which was parked near Selby Avenue and Chatsworth Street, on Monday night. They counted six people, including men and women, five of whom were underage.

The woman's iPhone was discovered in the trunk, her wallet in the center console. The phone rang shortly thereafter, and on the other end was a man looking for the woman who was robbed earlier that day.

The driver, Miklos Dates Jr., 18, told police that the car belonged to his aunt, according to the complaint. However, the North Carolina license plates were registered to an "unreturned" Enterprise rental.

Dates has been charged with aggravated robbery in the first degree and criminal sexual conduct in the fifth degree.

::: UPDATE :::

Dates has also been charged with theft of motor vehicle, and the Ramsey County Attorney's Office says the incident remains under investigation.

Police are looking into whether Dates was involved in a second robbery that took place in the same area, on the same morning. Another woman was reportedly robbed of two gold necklaces, which Dates was wearing when police questioned him, according to a second complaint filed at the courthouse.

It says the car -- a 2013 Chrysler 200 LX -- had recently disappeared from an airport lot.

I wonder what the chances are that this fine specimen of zoology came from a single-mother Welfare household.

@AnthonyCumia Think they act so savagely because they know they likely aren't gonna get a lengthy prison sentence?

Oh for the good old days when this punk would've been beaten to a pulp at the police station. Now he'll just get out in a year or two and do it again to someone else.

Sick bastards. And the fact that other females were in the car, too, is disgusting. These perverts should be reformed.

It's just interesting that you guys aren't expressing empathy for the victim or horror at the disgusting things they did to her.

Edward, if that were the case, they'd also be wrong. Based on what has been reported, they sound like predatory opportunists who robbed and attacked her because she was trusting enough to approach their car. Based on what we know, it's reasonable to believe they would have robbed and attacked the first person to approach, regardless of what their race was, unless there's more information that I'm unaware of. The fact that they referred to her as a white bitch AFTER the fact just doesn't make the case for it being a hate crime. Let me know if you're basing these claims on something more substantial, or if that's really it.

5 white guys beat up a black girl and take her phone.. Hmm what do you think would b said

The smell is how they found the guys in the first place. Not the brightest offenders in the neighborhood. Sitting in a car that might be stolen (North Carolina license plates were registered to an "unreturned" Enterprise rental), smoking weed, in posession of the assaulted woman's phone and wallet.

If the tables were turned you can bet we'd be hearing "racial bias hate crime"

Laura Gee

They feel that since one of the guys said "did you take that white b*tch's phone?", that it was a hate crime. Which is not evidence of a hate crime by any stretch of the imagination. Except the imagination of someone whose racist mindset is so overwhelming, it's palpable. I doubt they'd even care enough to comment on this woman's horrifying ordeal if there weren't a tenuous opportunity to make it all about race.

No he will not be charged with a hate crime, because only white people can commit hate crimes.
