By BBN Staff: Merisa Pate, 22, yesterday visited the Punta Gorda Police Station and reported that on Monday she was at home on a video call and simultaneously cooking when her attention was drawn to her roommate Ashleigh Lance.
Lance was being escorted inside the house at gunpoint by a slim dark-skinned man without mask demanding money.
Pate reportedly handed the intruder her purse, which had in an unknown amount of money.
During the process the robber started to demand more money but Pate shouted there was no more money and that the robber could take anything that he wanted from the house.
