BRIDGEPORT -

A New York man was left bloodied, beaten and robbed of his clothes and cash after meeting a Bridgeport teen who promised him sex on Instagram, police say.

Tyra Stevens, 19, of Bridgeport is charged with first-degree robbery, illegal possession of a weapon in a motor vehicle, engaging police in a pursuit and reckless driving.

The incident happened Tuesday night on Polk Street, police say.

Police say Stevens promised the man sex if he came to meet her in Bridgeport.

They say once the victim showed up at the home, he was pistol whipped by Stevens while walking down the stairs.

Police say Stevens and at least two men pointed guns at the victim and took his clothes and $400.

Stevens led police on a car chase but was stopped a short time later and found with the man's bloody clothes and $200.

Police say they also recovered two guns at the home.
