She did not call 911, according to police.
Police say the man's mobile phone and wallet were taken from him sometime during the beating.
Both suspects were arrested and charged with tampering with physical evidence. Colyer was charged with first-degree assault and first-degree robbery. Oliver was charged with complicity to first-degree assault and complicity to first-degree robbery.
