Two Garrison women, Tehya Wade, 21, and Savannah Boyd, 20, have been charged with felony attempted robbery counts for an incident on Oct. 27.
According to the complaint, an investigator with the Mille Lacs Tribal Police Department was dispatched to Virgo Road and Nay Ah Shing Drive in Onamia on report of a robbery.
The victim, visibly shaken with a torn shirt a swollen face, said that he and Wade had agreed to meet that morning after Wade had been texting him throughout the previous night asking him for money.
Wade picked the victim up at approximately 6 a.m. and drove to a park on Virgo Road and parked.
According to the complaint, the victim said Boyd opened his door and demanded he empty his pockets.
As the victim tried to get away, Boyd hit him with closed fists in the face and head area and someone who had presumably been hiding under a clothes pile in the back seat of the vehicle grabbed him by the shirt to prevent him from getting away.
Wade then exited the vehicle and attempted to hold the victim while Boyd dug through his pockets.
According to the complaint, the victim was able to block Boyd from digging in his pockets and escape by slipping out of his sweatshirt. The victim said the vehicle they came in briefly followed him as he ran toward his home.
Wade and Boyd were later located in the early afternoon and arrested.
Wade has been charged with felony first degree attempted aiding and abetting aggravated robbery, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years and/or a $35,000 fine.
Boyd has been charged with felony first degree attempted aggravated robbery, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years and/or a $35,000 fine.
