Armed robber says woman forced him to commit crime

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - A man who was arrested earlier this week in connection with two armed robberies claims he was forced to commit one of the crimes by a woman. Tomas Toves Quichocho was charged with robbery and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony. 

According to court documents, Quichocho claims that Jessilyn Babauta, who was arrested in a separate robbery of a Norwegian woman, held a gun to the back of his head and threatened to kill him if he didn't rob a woman at her home. Quichocho allegedly approached a woman as she was going into her home and used a knife to cut her purse strap and fled. 

Police say Quichocho and Babauta were responsible for giving a ride to a Norwegian woman last weekend and then robbing her of her mobile phone.
