PORT CHARLOTTE, Florida (WINK) - Charlotte County Sheriff's detectives arrested a Port Charlotte woman in connection to a bizarre robbery that happened earlier this month.
26-year-old Amanda Jean Linscott is charged with armed robbery.
Investigators say the incident began September 2 when the victim and his two friends went to the Paddy Wagon Irish Pub in Port Charlotte. When the bar closed early Monday morning, they invited two girls they met to one of the friend's home.
One of the women and the victim went into a bedroom to have sex. The girl said she needed $250, which he said he didn't have, but he did give her $120. The victim then went to the bathroom and when he returned, found the two women had left the home.
The victim had gotten the woman's cell phone number earlier at the bar and called her; they agreed to meet at the Pick N Run store on Peachland Boulevard.
When he got there he expected to meet the woman who took the $120. Instead, Amanda Linscott allegedly walked up to his Nissan Sentra and said the other girl ditched her.
Investigators say Linscott got into his car and as they drove off, the victim claims she began touching him and having sex with him while he was driving.
The victim told detectives she also said she needed money and he told her he already gave her friend $120 earlier. The victim said Linscott then put a .357 Taurus revolver to his head and demanded money.
The victim grabbed the gun and a fight ensued in the moving car; he said he punched her in the head so she would release the gun.
He reportedly lost control of his car and struck a palm tree. The car then went airborne and plowed across two front yards in the 1200 block of Dewhurst Street. After the vehicle came to a rest, Linscott got out and fled the scene, leaving the gun behind.
The victim was able to drive his wrecked Nissan Sentra to his two friends' home and told them what happened. He gave them the handgun and then called the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office.
As road patrol deputies responded to the area, an elderly man was in a nearby driveway on Peachland Boulevard. He told deputies his daughter, Amanda Linscott was in a vehicle crash and had been punched in the face.
Statements were taken from all parties involved and detectives began their investigation.
Based on the statements and evidence, detectives arrested Linscott and transported her to the Charlotte County Jail, where she remains on no bond.
