A Phoenix woman lured a Snapchat friend into an armed robbery where his car was taken after he was stabbed several times.

Phoenix Police arrested 21-year-old Savannah Renee Pierce on March 16 after her involvement in a carjacking in January. 

Police report that Pierce used Snapchat to make a friend and convinced him to meet her because she was having money problems and needed some cash. 

The victim met Pierce, who asked him to drive her to a friend's house near 39th And Glendale Avenues. They parked at a nearby park to await the friend’s arrival. At the park, Pierce and victim started making out in the car. When a man banged on the window, Pierce reportedly unlocked the door, letting the man into the car. When the victim refused to get out of the car, the suspect allegedly stabbed him four times in the arm with a "large knife."

The victim then got out of the car and the suspect fled with Pierce. 

Police located the car a few days later and Pierce on March 16, when she was arrested. Pierce wouldn't admit to knowing the male suspect, even though police obtained information showing the two had an on-again, off-again boyfriend-girlfriend relationship.

Pierce has been charged with aggravated assault and armed robbery.
