 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man who showed up to meet a woman was surprised to find her in the company of two men wearing ski masks.

According to the police report, it happened around 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 6 in the 1200 block of Trinity Park Drive off Durrett Lane near Preston Hwy. That's where police say the male suspects -- one armed with a knife and the other carrying a blunt object -- ordered the victim to "empty his pockets and give them all his property."

Police say the victim received minor injuries during the robbery. He was able to get away after police say he "faked like he was having a heart attack."

The two men in ski masks, along with 30-year-old Branigen Wallace -- the woman the victim was supposed to meet -- left the area in the victim's 2009 Ford F150 pickup truck. The vehicle was recovered a short distance from the scene.

Police say Wallace turned herself in on Oct. 8. She's charged with one count of complicity to robbery.
