NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A man who authorities say robbed a prostitute and fired a shot at her and another woman as they fled his house has been arrested.

Nola.com/The Picayune-Times reports 19-year-old Taron Duncan was arrested Friday and charged with armed robbery.

Authorities say two prostitutes went to Duncan’s house on April 22. One woman went inside the house, while the other waited in a vehicle.

The victim told Duncan he needed to pay before she would provide service. Duncan went to the back of the house and returned with a gun. Duncan pointed the weapon at the woman’s head and grabbed her purse. The woman ran to the vehicle and drove off with the other woman. According to arrest documents, Duncan fired at the vehicle.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for Duncan.
