LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Two people have been charged with robbery of an acquaintance that took place in the victim's home.

An arrest report says Darien Brown and Andrea Wilcox, both 25 of Louisville, went to the home of a person they knew on February 16 and asked to use the phone. Once inside, the report says Wilcox grabbed the woman in a choke hold, pulled a knife from her jacket and put it to the woman's neck.

While Wilcox restrained the woman, Brown started to search the home for cash. According to the report, he found $1,500 in a drawer. After getting the money, Brown and Wilcox fled.

The woman made a positive identification of the pair from a LMPD photo pack.

Brown and Wilcox were arrested early April 16. Each has been charged with one count of robbery.
