TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Three people have been charged after being accused of robbing a man who answered an online escort ad.
On Sunday, a man who was listed as a grad student in the Purdue directory contacted a woman on an escort internet ad by the name of Aria. When he arrived at her home on Central Street in Lafayette, she took him to a bedroom where he told her he was lonely.
He paid the woman $100 for a companionship and then she told him to leave. When the man questioned why he had to leave, other men came into the room.
One held a gun to the man’s head, while others took the man’s cash and phone, and then ransacked his car. They told him not to call police or they would use a recording of the incident to have him arrested for soliciting prostitution.
The victim did, however, contact police.
Authorities served a warrant to the property and arrested three individuals — Larrissa Catron, 19, Quenton Hansen, 18, and Rodney Lloyd, 21. All three face several charges including robbery, criminal confinement and theft.
Catron told investigators she had done this to about 15 other men. She also stated the pellet gun used in the incidents was hers.
