MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A 25-year-old is behind bars, accused of robbing a man he met on social media early Saturday morning.

Jostin Brown reportedly met the victim on the mobile chat page Mocospace and agreed to meet at Pope and Summer around 1 a.m.

When the victim arrived, they sat in his car for about 15 minutes talking, police said. That’s when Brown pulled out a gun and robbed the victim.

He then jumped out of the car and fled northbound on Pope.

Brown was located in the 3100 block of Faxon and arrested on aggravated robbery charges.
