CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A woman faces four counts of complicity after being accused of using a website to lure and direct a victim to a pre-planned location where he was robbed. 

On March 17, police say Tahje Portis, 20, allegedly used her cell phone to lure the victim to Winton Terrace thinking he was there to purchase a flat screen TV he found on the website Offerup.com.

Once the victim arrived, he was directed by Portis to a pre-planned location where he was met by unknown co-defendents with guns who took the victim's property, court documents state.

Portis is due in court on Friday.
