A woman faces robbery and kidnapping charges for luring a man through an online dating site, according to Memphis Police Department.

Investigators said Jasmine Shields, 21, met her victim online. After texting with the victim, they set up a date for April 25. 

When she picked him up, she wasn't alone. Inside the car with her were two small children and her brother. The brother told the victim he wanted to get some marijuana, and that's when another man got into the car.

The second man to get into the car pointed a gun at the victim and demanded his money and cellphone. In response, the victim handed over his wallet and his iPhone.

Police said Shields then drove the victim to an ATM and told him to withdraw money. When the victim had withdrawn the maximum amount, the woman told the two other men in the car to kill the victim.

Eventually, the criminals let the victim out of the vehicle and drove off.

Shields was later identified and arrested. She faces aggravated robbery and especially aggravated kidnapping charges.

No word on whether the other men in the car have been arrested.
