The suspect also took an expensive watch and the victim's cell phone.
The victim, who police reports say suffered a swollen lip and had blood on his shirt, later identified Gilbert as the suspect. Gilbert was arrested Thursday afternoon after turning himself in to police and has been charged with robbery.
Gilbert was scheduled to be arraigned in Bowling Green Municipal Court at 8:30 a.m. Friday morning.
According to police reports, Ogle with interviewed Wednesday regarding the disappearance and confessed to using two stolen cards. She is alleged to have used one card for one purchase and the other card for multiple purchases. The police report also states Ogle admitted to signing the victim's name to one of the purchases, and the police report said the amount of that particular purchase was $18.05.
Ogle has been charged with receiving stolen property, forgery and misuse of credit cards. The first two charges are both fifth-degree felonies, while the latter is a first-degree misdemeanor.
Ogle is scheduled to appear in Bowling Green Municipal Court at 2:30 p.m. Monday.
