— A man who met a woman through an online escort service got more than he planned for when he told police he was robbed by his ‘date’ and her accomplice.

Fayetteville police said the robbery happened shortly after 1 a.m. Monday when the victim met the woman and followed her to a residence in the 800 block of Ridge Road. He told police he met her through an Internet forum that advertises escort services.

While outside, a gunman approached and robbed the man of his money and personal property before fleeing on foot. When the victim called 911 to report the robbery, his date drove away.

The victim gave police a description of the woman’s car, which officers found at a residence in the 800 block of Tamarack Drive. When officers knocked on the door, the occupants locked it.

Officers secured the perimeter around the home to ensure the occupants would not escape. Eventualy, two people exited the home and were arrested. Investigators said the pair conspired to rob the victim.

Kala Brown, 23, and Gabriel McCrayer, 26, who both listed the dwelling on Tamarack Drive as their residence, were each charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Brown also was charged with soliciting for prostitution and was held on a $25,000 secured bond.

McCrayer also was charged with resist, delay and obstruction and was held on a $25,000 secured bond.

    JAT, what makes you think this "girl" of 23 was doing anything against her will? You've been watching too many "prostitute with heart of gold" movies.

    "Prostitution is in fact still illegal and he is technically an accessory to the crime.

    Would someone please tell me what is wrong with buying/selling a little prefabricated lovin?

    btw, I thought "tolerance" was what you whine about every day? Obviously you have zero tolerance for someone elses beliefs. Hypocrite.

    You're correct. I do not tolerate liars. They are sinners. Especially to their own children. Poor kids. Lied to from birth but taught lying is a sin. LOL. You must be a Romney lib.

    An escort service is legal if the goal is only to have an escort. Rarely, if ever, is that the case. All he has to do is claim he just wanted someone to talk to and spend time with. Cops couldn't prove anything unless the girl said they exchanged money for sex.

    And was the man robbed charged for trying to meet up with a hooker? You go out and do something wrong at 1am, it turns into something worse...it's called Karma and all three of you should go down for it.

    Too scared to be a prostitute and too dumb to be a criminal, Ms Brown has a long life ahead of her.

    awr117,jjordan231179, No different than the lies you and your liberal atheist or agnostic kind tell or teach in schools every day. Evolution, big bang nonsense or being gay is "natural". Go spew that stupidity somewhere else. Isn't there a protest or parade in chapel hell you're missing right now?
