Detectives arrested the server of a Tampa, Florida nightclub who was accused of plotting an attack against a customer.

According to authorities, Alexandria Seletos worked at The Drynk in South Tampa and is  now accused of getting two suspects to beat up and rob a man outside the club Thursday, Feb. 16 at 1:15 a.m.

"This is definitely something outside the norm," Eddy Durkin, Tampa PD Public Information Officer said.

Detectives have not said why Seletos set up the scheme or the relationship between her and the victim.

"She set the whole entire thing up where the suspects, who beat him up, would be able to engage him at her place of business and then she made it look like she wasn't involved or tried to and failed," Durkin said.

Durkin said Seletos tried to get away with the crime, claiming her car had been stolen. Authorities said that is not true instead, offering the suspects her car to use.

Detectives are still looking for the two men, accused of beating up the victim. If anyone has any information about this case, they are asked to call the Tampa Police Department at 813-276-3200.

The owner of the nightclub, Enrique DeJesus, declined to make a comment to ABC Action News, but did state Seletos was let go and had only worked at the nightclub less than 4 months.

Seletos is being charged with principle to robbery, principle to kidnapping and filing a false report.
