According to the report, a Whisperwood representative told the teen and man they had to leave because they didn't have a pool pass. The two were walking near the laundry room when the man pushed her into the laundry room, aimed a pistol at her and demanded that she "give it up."
The victim said the suspect reached inside of her bikini top and stole at least $500 but didn't harm her.
Another individual heard the girl screaming for help. He saw the man flee the laundry room and drop the victim's money on the sidewalk in front of the room, according to the report.
The black man ran through the wooded area near the apartment complex, the victim said.
