CEDAR RAPIDS — A Cedar Rapids woman was arrested over the weekend in connection with a Feb. 1 robbery in which a man was pistol-whipped, police said.
Meghan L. Dreckman faces a charge of first-degree robbery.
Police said Dreckman arranged to meet a man in a room at the Budget Inn motel at 3100 16th Ave. SW.
The man was assaulted by a male accomplice, while another accomplice — identified as Malik Muhammad — took the man’s cellphone and cash, according to police.
Police said the pistol-whipping resulted in injuries.
Muhammad also faces a charge of first-degree robbery.
In connection with another incident in which he is accused of using torture, Muhammad faces charges of first-degree kidnapping, first-degree robbery and false use of credit cards/ATM cards. Those charges were filed in March, court records show.
He also is accused of first-degree robbery after fingerprints tied him to a 2018 robbery in which a store clerk was held at knifepoint, police said.
Dreckman was arrested Sunday, according to court records. She is being held at Linn County Jail on a $20,000 bond.
