HARAHAN, La. — A woman with ties to New Hampshire answered her door topless when an Uber driver rang, then started coming on to him, all in a bizarre effort to rob the man, according to police in Harahan, La.
Police said the woman — identified as Rayna Fillios, 22 — called for Uber, and when the car arrived allegedly grabbed the driver’s arms, pulled him to her bare chest, kissed him and bit his tongue.
Once she released the driver, her alleged cohort, Anthony Kennedy, 24, pulled a knife and demanded cash, police said. The victim refused, and Kennedy, who also has New Hampshire ties, allegedly punched him in the chin, knocking out a tooth, police said.
Kennedy fled and hid in a shed, police said. He wasn’t arrested until after police released a police dog when he refused to come out of hiding.
“Kennedy went to the hospital for treatment,” a police statement said.
Meanwhile, Fillios stayed on scene, “pretending as if she was not involved,” police wrote.
The attempted robbery took place on Saturday, police said.
Both Kennedy and Fillios have separate addresses in Harahan, a city of about 9,300 people about 10 miles north of New Orleans.
Police said Fillios had a protection order against Kennedy.
Kennedy used to live in Nashua, according to his Facebook page. Filliios is from Merrimack, according to her Facebook page.
Kennedy is charged with attempted armed robbery, second-degree battery, resisting an officer and violation of a protection order.
Fillios was charged with being principal to an armed robbery and second-degree battery.
