Pair arrested for allegedly robbing man after posting escort ad
OKLAHOMA CITY – Two people are behind bars after allegedly robbing and shooting a man after posting an ad for escort services.
Authorities were called to a local hospital after one man arrived at the emergency room with a gunshot wound.
The victim told police he had made arrangements earlier in the night for an escort.
When 26-year-old Kassady Lesiter arrived, he paid her $200.
When they went into his room, he told police he heard a knock at the door.
When he opened it, he says he saw a man pull out a gun and a badge.
According to the police report, the man identified himself as an undercover police officer.
The victim says another suspect came into the home and took $250 and a phone from his pocket.
That’s when he started to realize the alleged suspects were not police officers.
He yelled for his roommate to come out and help him but was immediately punched in the face.
Police say the alleged suspect shot the victim one time before running from the house.
Officers arrested Lesiter and 28-year-old Christopher Banschbach for the crime.
The pair are now being charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
