A local boyfriend and girlfriend face several charges after allegedly conspiring to rob another man and it was all set up on Snapchat.

Miranda Cohen, age 20, and Joniah Kano, age 21, are facing charges after trying to rob two men November 2nd.

According to the Murfreesboro Police report, Cohen contacted the victim on the social media platform to have sex. The victim rode to the Cayuga Drive residence and walked around to the back of the home. That's when two black males walked to the driver's side of the truck and pulled a gun.


The report states one of the suspects got into the passenger's side while another, identified later as Kano, got into the back of the truck.

That's when the driver took off, trying to escape. Kano was thrown from the back of the truck while the suspect in the passenger's side got out of the vehicle and began firing shots at the driver and chased him.


When the suspect caught up with the truck, the victim was pistol whipped and items stolen from the vehicle. Meanwhile, Kano went to a nearby home on Gold Valley Drive and asked for help. When police got there, they found him "bleeding profusely from his head and had what appeared to be road rash all over his body."

The driver went to the Tigermart at the corner of Northfield and Lascassas and phoned police for help.

Cohen admitted to authorities she and Kano set up the meet on Snapchat. She was charged with two counts of criminal conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. Cohen will be in court January 25th.

Kano was taken to St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital for treatment then to jail on two counts of aggravated robbery, two counts of theft, kidnapping and carjacking.

The investigation continues in identifying the third suspect.
