Spencer Woman Wanted For Setting Up Man Who Was Shot And Robbed

(Lauderdale, Mn.)-- A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Spencer woman wanted on charges in connection with an incident at a St. Paul, Minnesota suburb.

A criminal complaint says a man there invited a woman he recently met on Facebook, 22-year-old Aynslie Thorman of Spencer, to come to his place for drinks. The complaint says the two drank and watched television, until Thorman went out the front door to make a phone call. The man also left the room. When he returned, he saw two strange men standing in the doorway. Both of their faces were covered—one with a bandanna, the other with a mask. One of the men fired a gun into the floor, demanding money. The victim gave the men $160, saying that was all he had. The men then struck the victim in the head with the gun, forced him to lie down on the floor, pointed the gun at his chest, cocked it, and shot him in the leg. They then left the residence.

The complaint charges Thorman, who's still wanted, with two counts of aggravated 1st degree robbery and two counts of first-degree burglary involving a dangerous weapon and an assault on a person.

The complaint goes on to say the victim picked Thorman out of a photo lineup as the woman who came to his home to set him up.
