Three people robbed a 23-year-old Rockland man in the softball fields behind Flaherty Elementary School Sunday night after he agreed to meet a woman there he met online.
Police Chief Russell Jenkins said in a statement that Casey M. Millis, 17 of Braintree, met the victim behind the school and two others wearing bandanas approached him from behind.
"The man was carrying a pipe and the woman was carrying a handgun that
she pointed at the victim’s chest," Jenkins said. "The couple demanded money from the victim and a struggle ensued, during which time he was struck in the back of the head with the pipe."
The female assailant was later identified as Vanessa A. Glover, 20 of Quincy. She was found at the home of Millis, where a pellet gun and clothing
believed to be worn by Glover during the robbery were recovered, Jenkins said.
An unnamed sum of money was stolen from the Rockland man during the robbery. Afterward he drove himself to South Shore Hospital. He was treated there for a minor injury.
Both Glover and Millis were charged with several offenses, including armed robbery while masked, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy, Jenkins said. Detectives are seeking the identity of their male companion.
