A woman has been arrested, and the search is on for two men, in connection with an armed robbery at a Rocky Mount motel.
Charlie Toffton, age 39, told police he was given a ride from the suspect, 37-year-old Olivia Botti Kafka, to his room at the Executive Inn on Wesleyan Boulevard. Toffton said Kafka later left and then returned to his room. He said when he opened the door for her, two men -- one with a gun -- demanded money and threatened to shoot him.
One of the suspects weighed about 230 pounds, was 5'10", black and had a goatee. The other suspect was about 6'7", black, weighed about 260 pounds and also had a goatee.
Police say they took $700 from Toffton and then left in the car Kafka had been driving, a white Crown Victoria with a front tag that stated "God is my co-pilot."
During the course of the robbery, the victim was struck in the right eye and injured his leg. He went to Nash General for treatment.
Police said later, they received information that Kafka and the stolen vehicle were at Braswell Library. An officer went inside and arrested Kafka. She is facing charges of aiding and abetting robbery with a dangerous weapon, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. The two men have not been identified.
