ODESSA - An Odessa woman is behind bars for robbing a man outside an apartment complex.

Police arrested 22-year old Desiree Crayton last Friday.

On Monday, a man told police that a woman walked up to him at the Springwood Apartments on 1301 Harless and demanded everything in his pockets.

He said the she had a hand in her pocket and was threatening to shoot him.

The woman took his keys and $2.

The man then pulled a gun on her before realizing the woman didn't have a gun in her pocket, but a paint roller handle instead.

She ran off, but when police found her several days later she told police she was just "playing around."

The victim identified the woman as Crayton, and she was charged and arrested.
