NORFOLK-Three people are charged with assaulting a man at a gas station during what police say was a flim-flam.

Officers say 41-year-old Edwina Randall set up the robbery that occurred around 2:00 p.m. on June 13 in the 1100 block of N. Military Highway. Investigators say she and 44-year-old Emanuel McCants approached the man, asked for gas money and then beat him and stole his wallet.

The third person, 56-year-old Gail Lewis, drove the getaway car-a white Dodge Magnum, according to police.

Randall was arrested Saturday; McCants and Lewis were arrested Sunday in Chesapeake and Va. Beach respectively.
