After arranging for a casual hookup with a woman he met online, a 22-year-old Michigan man was shot and robbed on Sunday evening in what appeared to be a setup, according to local police.
Daniel Alexander Wargo, 21, and his girlfriend Summer Louise Desjardin, 24, were arraigned on Wednesday on charges that include armed robbery, assault with intent to murder and felony firearm possession, according to a statement from Macomb County assistant prosecutor Dean Alan obtained by the Macomb Daily.
Investigators believes that Desjardin met the victim on Facebook and subsequently made plans to visit his home on the pretense of having sex, Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer told the Detroit Free Press.
When Desjardin arrived, Wargo allegedly entered the home armed with a handgun and announced a robbery. When the victim refused to cooperate, Wargo shot him in the torso, police allege. It is not yet clear if anything was stolen from the residence.
The suspects then fled the scene in a Chevrolet Cavalier, the Macomb Daily reported.
Detectives tracked them down through their social media profiles. They located Desjardin's phone number, tracked the location and arrested the couple, according to the Macomb Daily.
Wargo absconded from parole in March after time in prison for a second-degree home invasion, Michigan Department of Corrections records show. His bond was set at $1 million; bail for Desjardin was set at $251,520. If convicted, the two could potentially face life in prison, the Detroit Free Press reported.
The two are still in custody as of Thursday morning, Macomb County Jail records show.
The victim is currently in stable condition at a Detroit hospital, according to police officials.
