The 19-year-old victim told police he had advertised on Facebook about selling an iPhone 4S for $70. The victim and a woman who interested in buying the phone, identified as Tatyana Williams, agreed to meet in the 1st block of Lyford Key.

According to the police report, the victim got out of his car and left it running while he went to complete the sale of the phone. The victim handed Williams the phone and she asked him if he had $10 in change.

While the victim reached for his wallet, he was reportedly struck in the face by an unknown black male. As he attempted to defend himself, he was hit by another unknown black male.

During the fight, Williams allegedly took the iPhone, got into the victim's 2006 Cadillac with another female and drove off.

The two suspects who assaulted the victim fled on foot.

The victim attempted to run after his vehicle to try and get Williams to stop, according to police reports, but she put the vehicle in reverse and ran over the victim's foot in the process. She also struck a parked vehicle and fence before the two male suspects got into the car and the vehicle left the area.

The victim was taken to the hospital by a family member for treatment of his injuries, which also included a dislocated shoulder.

The victim showed police Williams' Facebook page and text messages that set up the sale of the iPhone. While he was receiving treatment for his injuries, Williams contacted the victim and spoke to his sister.

According to the victim's sister, Williams claimed to have set up the victim because he sold her a stolen phone the previous day.

The stolen vehicle was eventually found in the area of West Mercury Boulevard and Woodbury Forest Drive.

As a result of the investigation, 18-year-old Tatyana Williams was arrested and charged with one count of carjacking, one count of hit and run to unattended property, one count of driving without a license, and one count of reckless driving. She remains in the custody of the Hampton Sheriff's Office.
