NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Metro police arrested a woman Sunday night for targeting two different men in north Nashville after chatting with them on Facebook.

Carlisha Bishop, 23, reportedly met both men at a club and began chatting with them on Facebook, setting up first dates.

Authorities said Bishop set up the men in order to rob them at the Cumberland Pointe Apartments.

On December 27, the first victim got out of his car to meet Bishop when three men forced him back inside his vehicle.  They held him at gunpoint and forced him to withdraw cash from nearby ATMs.

On January 14, the second victim met Bishop inside a vacant apartment at the complex when he was approached by two men with guns.  The men robbed him and shot him in the rear end.

Police were able to arrest Bishop after she left her purse inside the vacant apartment with her driver's license inside.

Authorities stated one victim was also able to snap a picture of Bishop before he was robbed.  The photos showed a side of view of her, but it was enough to help police identify her.

Bishop is currently being held in the Metro jail on $60,000 bond.  She has been charged with one count of especially aggravated robbery and one count of aggravated robbery.
