Teen Robbed at Gunpoint After Calling For an Escort: Cops
Eighteen-year-old Austin Young was robbed after he called an escort service for a night of companionship, cops in South Florida say.
A Florida teen was robbed at gunpoint then dumped on the side of the road after calling an escort service for a night of companionship, authorities say.
Austin Young, 18, of Port Charlotte called a Fort Myers area number in search of an escort in the early morning hours of May 8, police say.
According to the News-Press, Young negotiated with a woman who police have identified as 25-year-old Kimberly Ann Brown.
Brown allegedly then picked up Young at his home and drove him to a remote area nearby, where cops say Young got more than he bargained for.
That's when police say a man who'd been hiding in the rear passenger seat placed what Young told police he thought was a gun to his head.
The man allegedly demanded all of Young's valuables then ordered him out of the car before driving off.
Brown was arrested on on Thursday following an investigation by the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office.
Brown has been charged with felony armed robbery.
The male suspect has not yet been identified.
