Four teenage girls plotted an armed robbery early Saturday so they could make some quick cash to go partying, Orlando police reports show.
The teens drove slowly along Curry Ford Road about 5 a.m. with their car’s emergency lights flashing to draw the attention of a good Samaritan willing to offer help, reports show.
That’s when they spotted 21-year-old Cameron Castro walking home and the girls pulled into the parking lot of a Krystal restaurant and asked for help, saying their car was overheating, records show.
After popping the hood and asking for a container of water, Castro told police one of the teens covered her face with a T-shirt and demanded, “Give us everything you’ve have — I have a gun.”
Castro responded, “You can’t be serious,” at which time the teen later identified as Rachel Salemi-Cavelli, 18, of Apopka, shoved a pistol against his forehead.
Fearing for his life, Castro told police he gave the teens $50, saying: “That’s all I have.” His answer apparently enraged the driver — a 17-year-old who is not identified by the Sentinel because of her age — who twice rammed Castro with the front bumper of her car, reports state.
The girls fled in the car but were stopped and arrested near the corner of Semoran Boulevard and Michigan Avenue.
Upon being questioned, the teens admitted robbing Castro with a paintball pistol that looks like a firearm, and said they planned the robbery “to use the money for gas, food and going out.”
Police charged Salemi-Cavelli with robbery while wearing a mask. Natalie Perez, 19, of Apopka was charged with first-degree robbery. Delainah Torres, 18, of Orlando, was charged with principal to first degree robbery. The driver was charged with principal to first-degree robbery and two counts of aggravated battery with a motor vehicle, records show.
