A Michigan man was shot in the stomach and robbed after he set up a late-night sex session with a woman over Facebook.
The unidentified victim, 22, believed that Summer Desjardin, 24, was coming to his home in Detroit Sunday night for casual sex but she allegedly arrived with her boyfriend Daniel Wargo, 21, who was masked and armed.
The couple was arrested Monday after police used their social media accounts and surveillance to track them down.
Wargo had absconded parole in March 19 and now faces six new charges including assault with intent to murder.

Police responded to the shooting at around 10.30pm Sunday in the 2000 block of Jeannie Court in the area of Nine Mile and Dequindre roads.
The 22-year-old victim had arranged to meet Desjardin for a hook-up but it was all pretense and the couple had planned to rob him instead.
After Desjardin arrived, Wargo entered the house and announced the robbery.
He exchanged words with the victim before allegedly shooting him in the stomach.
The couple fled in a Chevrolet Cavalier after stealing multiple items, according to New York Daily News.
Police, however, where able to track the couple down through Desjardin’s social media page and tracked her phone number to Wayne.
A Special Operations Unit found them inside the car they used for the getaway.
Lt. John Barnes told the Macomb Daily that Wargo attempted to pull out his gun when officers surrounded the vehicle and that undisclosed stolen goods were found in the car.
The young victim was found at the scene sitting on the floor and incapacitated with a single gunshot wound.
He is recovering in Detroit Receiving Hospital and said to be in a stable condition.

‘These are the types of situations people have to be very concerned (about) when they’re communicating over social media, just as far as possibly being set up as a target of a robbery, a burglary or even a sexual assault, and we warn people all the time,’ warned Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer.
The couple was arraigned in the 37th District Court on Wednesday where a judge set a bond of $1million for Wargo and $250,000 for Desjardin.
Wargo is charged with armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, assault with intent to murder, possession of a firearm by a felon, and two counts of felony firearm

Wargo had absconded from parole on March 19 after serving time for second-degree home invasion, larceny from a building, and weapons convictions in Wayne County.
The couple will now face a probable cause conference on May 12.
