Report: Woman draws gun on man during
sex in moving car
PORT CHARLOTTE — A Port Charlotte woman was arrested Tuesday after authorities said she pulled a gun on a man in a moving car while she was having sex with him, according to the Charlotte county Sheriff’s Office.
Amanda Jean Linscott, 26, of the 20300 block of Peachland Boulevard, was charged with one count of armed robbery
in connection with the incident.
According to a report, Linscott and another woman met the victim at the Paddy Wagon Irish Pub in Port Charlotte on Sept. 2. The victim invited the women back to a friend’s house in the 1400 block of Atlas Avenue after the bar closed for the evening, the report states, because he felt there was a mutual attraction between him and the second woman.
Once at the home, the other woman and the victim went to a bedroom to have sex, during which time the woman asked the victim for $250. The victim gave the woman $120 and went to the bathroom. When he returned, both women had left the residence, the report states.
Confused, the victim contacted the women and asked them to meet him at the Pik N Run convenience store on Peachland Boulevard, but only Linscott showed up when the victim arrived.
Linscott jumped into the victim’s vehicle, a blue, four-door Nissan Sentra, and immediately started performing oral sex on him, the report states. Linscott then allegedly pulled a nickel-plated .357 handgun, placed it to the victim’s head and demanded money.
While the car was still moving along Dewhurst Street, the victim grabbed the gun and struggled with Linscott, eventually punching her in the eye, a report stated. He lost control of the vehicle, striking a palm tree and sending the vehicle airborne.
Both the victim and Linscott fled the scene, but the victim was able to retrieve the car and return to the home on Atlas Avenue, where he phoned authorities.
When later interviewed by detectives, Linscott said the victim was forcing her to engage in sex acts and she pulled the weapon in an effort to defend herself. She also admitted to carrying the weapon in the small of her back, authorities said.
Authorities arrested Linscott on Tuesday and transported her to the Charlotte County Jail, where she was released on $25,000 bond. According to CCSO spokesman Bob Carpenter, the case was taken over by detectives following the initial investigation by road deputies, and detectives felt they had enough evidence to charge Linscott with armed robbery.
The victim could not be reached for comment, and Linscott declined comment for this story.
The other woman with Linscott during the night of the alleged incident is not facing criminal charges, Carpenter added.
