FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — A Springdale woman previously charged as an accomplice to aggravated robbery and kidnapping faces a new robbery charge, according to a preliminary arrest report.

Police arrested Michel Rascon-Rodriguez on May 23 in connection with aggravated robbery after a man told police she and James Maxey robbed him, according to the report. The man said he answered an ad for a massage but was ambushed when he arrived.

He said Rascon-Rodriguez and Maxey took his wallet and later stole $300 from his bank account.

Rascon-Rodriguez, 20, and Maxey, 26, were charged last month after allegedly kidnapping and robbing a man at knife point April 17, according to court documents. Both have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The man came forward after recognizing Rascon-Rodriguez and Maxey from their mugshots, according to the report.

Rodriguez was released Wednesday (June 14) from the Washington County Detention Center after posting a $10,000 bond.

She has a preliminary hearing on her new charges set for Friday (June 16) in Washington County Circuit court.
