Leesburg police detectives have tracked down two suspects who lured a man to an apartment, forced him to strip at knifepoint and committed an armed robbery which fetched $2.

Ricky Allen, 61, and his girlfriend, 28-year-old Stephanie Marie Hogan, are facing charges of armed robbery in connection with the March 19 incident. Both were taken into custody this past week and booked at the Lake County Jail on $50,000 bond each.

Allen and a woman with the street name “Mungy,” who the police are still trying to identify, demanded that the victim turn over his wallet, cell phone and clothes. He was crying as he stripped down to his underwear as he feared for his life, according to the affidavit of probable cause filed in support of the arrest warrant request.

The victim had been lured to a Leesburg apartment located in the 400 block of Oakland Street. Hogan coaxed the man over for a visit through a series of text messages. The victim had been a roommate last year with both Allen and Hogan.

During the robbery the alleged thieves took $2 and the victim’s cell phone.

Hogan has had several arrests for drug possession and Allen has had six armed robbery arrests.
