A Clark County man was allegedly clubbed and robbed by the boyfriend of a supposed prostitute when he met the woman for sex.
Police say the prostitute and boyfriend had planned the alleged robbery together.
The suspects, Jacob E. Diepenbrock, 40, of Aloha, Ore., and Danielle L. Azevedo, 24, of Vancouver, made first appearances Thursday in Clark County Superior Court.
Both defendants are being held in jail on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder and first-degree robbery.
Diepenbrock is also suspected of first-degree burglary.
According to court documents, the alleged victim, Greg Kappler, said he arranged to meet the woman after seeing her post on Craigslist. The woman who went by "Karizma" requested to meet him at his Hazel Dell house Tuesday night.
During their meeting, Azevedo left the man's bedroom and her boyfriend entered, allegedly clubbing Kappler repeatedly, according to court documents.
When Kappler was able to retrieve a handgun, the two fled.
Kappler was hospitalized at Peace Health Southwest Medical Center with serious injuries, including a concussion, according to court documents.
