A Georgia couple is behind bars after allegedly robbing a stranger at gunpoint after luring him through Snapchat in a sex-for-cash scheme.
Christopher Allen Morris and Lauryn Mychelle Fields, both 19, both face multiple charges following the alleged robber.
Fields, who first encountered the victim on Snapchat, later arranged to meet with him, allegedly promising sex in exchange for money, according to a warrant obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
They allegedly met in the man’s vehicle on May 4, roughly a mile from the woman’s home, the Marietta Daily Journal reported. However, shortly after 10:30 p.m., Morris and another unknown individual allegedly surrounded the car and pulled out a firearm and threatened him with it.
Morris aimed the gun at the man’s chest and later struck him with the pistol, “causing a laceration above the victim’s left eye,” the warrant alleged, according to the Journal-Constitution. He later lifted $180 from the victim’s wallet and told the individual he was Fields’ “man,” the warrant also said. The 19-year-old also allegedly took photos of the man’s debit cards, warrants also stated, according to the Marietta Daily Journal.
Authorities later seized a firearm that matched two rounds of ammunition that were found at the scene of the alleged robbery.
Fields allegedly told detectives later that Morris had arranged for her to have sexual encounters with other men for cash in the past.
The couple was charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and battery, jail records show.
Morris and Fields are currently being held without bond at a Cobb County detention facility, the Journal-Constitution reported.
