(Newser) – The woman who survived a robbery at the hands of Craigslist suspect Philip Markoff did so by offering no resistance, ABC News reports. “I just complied with everything he wanted me to do,” said Trisha Leffler, whom Markoff met at a Boston hotel for a massage. “I didn’t resist him in any way and that’s why.” Leffler, who lost $800, has positively identified Markoff as her assailant.
