Mandeville, La.- A Mandeville robbery victim accuses a woman he met on a dating website of robbing him.

Mandeville detectives say they arrested a West Bank couple Tuesday for robbing a 53-year-old man at knife point and beating him. Detectives say the arrest took place with the help of Louisiana State Police and the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's Office.

Investigators say the victim met Kasi Lynn Ferguson of Belle Chasse at the Mariner's Village Marina in Mandeville on Sunday. According to the victim, the two met on the online dating site, "Seeking Arrangement.com."

They say shortly after 1:00am Sunday night, Ferguson and the victim were sitting in his vehicle when Blaise Thomas Pertuit of Westwego showed up, pulled a knife on the victim and beat him.

Ferguson and Pertuit were arrested as fugitives and initially booked into the Plaquemines Parish Jail before being extradited back to St Tammany Parish Jail.

Both have been charged with one count of Armed Robbery.
