According to the victim, they drove to Skyview Apartments on Susannah Drive.

When they arrived, two suspects appeared and robbed the victim at gunpoint. They stole his money, jewelry and cell phone.

During the robbery, the victim tried to wrestle the gun away from one of the suspects. Three shots were fired, but no one was struck. The victim sustained minor injuries to his hand and arm during the struggle.

Stewart and her male friend left the scene with the two robbery suspects.

The victim drove back to the address where he originally picked Stewart up. He told police he saw Stewart sitting in a car with the other men.

When police arrived, only Stewart was present.

She admitted to police that she set up the victim to be robbed. Stewart has a long history of robbery and theft. She recently was released from jail for robbery.

Stewart told police that the suspect with a gun is named Mario Winslow. After checking police databases, they were unable to find anyone by that name.

Police are continuing to search for the male suspects in the case.

Stewart has been charged with aggravated robbery.
