OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- The two people accused of taking a victim shopping at gunpoint have been ordered to undergo psychological examinations.
Robyn Celeste Hopkins and Steven Michael Dirks are charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping after the late August incident.
Police say Hopkins had given the victim 500 dollars for rent but later decided she wanted her money back. She then enlisted the help of Dirks, who allegedly displayed a handgun.
After hearing the victim had no money, the two allegedly went through his belongings, taking several items. When they found a checkbook, they allegedly drove him to the Riverdale Target so they could force him to buy them more items,
During an altercation in the store, the victim yelled that Dirks had a gun and the suspects fled, but were captured.
