A 24-year-old Florida woman is facing felony carjacking charges after she set up a man she met on a dating app to become a victim of the crime, Fox 35 Orlando reports. Brionna Eaddy, from Titusville, met the 35-year-old victim on the Tagged dating app. After chatting for several days, they decided to meet in person, which is when things went downhill.
- The incident took place on September 24. Eaddy and the man met up and drove around in the victim’s 2013 Mazda CX9 to a local park but decided to go back to Eaddy’s home when they got there and found the park was closed.
- Brionna Eaddy spent the entire journey back to her apartment on her phone. The victim later told police that Eaddy was sending and receiving numerous texts throughout the drive and that she called an unknown person at one point, as well.
- When they got back to her apartment, two men were waiting for them — and one had a gun. The man with a gun ordered the victim out of his SUV and demanded the keys. Eaddy simply decided to “just stand around and wait” throughout what should have been a very scary and traumatic experience.
- The carjackers told the victim to lie in the grass. When he did, the men and Eaddy got into his SUV and drove off. However, it didn’t take long for the victim to report his car stolen and send Eaddy’s photos in.
- Soon after, Brionna Eaddy was arrested and booked into Brevard County Jail. She was charged with felony carjacking and remains behind bars without bond. It’s unclear whether the two other suspects involved in the case were also arrested.
