A woman has been charged with aggravated robbery after police said she set up the robbery of a man who had offered to take her to Walmart.
Police said Holly Renee Carney, 29, sent text messages to a man named "Dirty."
The victim, 51-year-old Paul Phillips, said he was robbed at gunpoint and pistol whipped by a white male at 5507 Brainerd Road in the incident on Friday.
He said he was at that location to meet Ms. Carney and had taken her to Walmart to shop. He said he was helping her carry in bags to her room when he was hit over the head several times with the pistol.
Police said the victim had several visible injuries on his face and head. An ambulance was called, but he declined treatment.
Police said Ms. Carney "orchestrated the robbery as to where to do the robbery and what the victim supposedly had on his person."
Ms. Carney admitted to sending the texts, and she said she later deleted them. Her cell phone was confiscated and was to be examined by Mark Hamilton, police phone expert.
