(Scroll down for video) A scary-looking woman with eyes that were tattooed black, lured a man to her home, where he was robbed, according to police in South Carolina.

The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office said that two people were arrested in connection with the report of an armed robbery on Monday night.

Deputies of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a home on Sandal Brook Road in Indian Land at about 11:20 p.m.

The home is just down the street from the sheriff’s office Indian Land Substation. Deputies found the 25-year-old male victim outside.

He reported that he knew Morgan Joyce Varn, 24, who lived in the home. She invited him over.

Also present inside the home were Jonathan Mikael Robinson, 23, of Charlotte, another adult female who was with Robinson, and two other adult males.

According to the victim, Robinson was armed with a handgun.

Varn demanded the victim’s cell phone and money, and he gave them to her. Varn smashed the screen on the phone. Varn also threatened the victim with an ashtray.

The victim left the home, and someone threw his phone out behind him. The phone was inoperable, so the victim went to a neighboring home to call 911.

The three deputies on the scene attempted to call the occupants out of the home. The two other adult males did come out, leaving Robinson, Varn, and the other adult female inside.

An investigator arrived and made telephone contact with Varn, who said they would come out. They did not, and Varn would no longer answer her phone.

Other officers, investigators, a crisis negotiator, and the SWAT team arrived. A search warrant was obtained. The crisis negotiator unsuccessfully called out to the occupants for several hours over a patrol car public address system.

The decision was made for the SWAT team to toss a telephone into the home as a final attempt to communicate with the occupants.

When the door was opened, Varn and the other adult female were brought out and detained. Robinson did not answer the phone and continued to refuse to come out.

After several minutes, the SWAT team entered the home and took Robinson into custody. The home was searched, and a pistol and ammunition were found.

The pistol had been reported stolen in an Indian Land car burglary. A substantial amount of cash was found on Robinson when he was booked into the Lancaster County Detention Center.

Robinson was charged with armed robbery, kidnapping, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, and possession of a stolen pistol.

Varn was charged with armed robbery, kidnapping, and malicious injury to personal property. Bond was denied for Robinson and Varn.
