State Police report the victim had met the Cedar Lake woman over the internet and met with her a second time on March 15th, with Flores accompanying her. All three drove to Hammond from Crown Point, where Flores then left the vehicle, and went into a residence only to later return to the vehicle where he allegedly put a gun to the back of the victim's head and demanded everything in his pockets. After the victim complied he was driven back to his vehicle and released, upon which he reported the events to State Police.
