A Massachusetts woman unknowingly became a getaway driver for a man who met her on a dating app and subsequently robbed a bank on Dec.
The woman told authorities that she had picked Christopher Castillo up from his parents’ home in Rhode Island, and drove toward Massachusetts.
Castillo reportedly told the woman to make a stop at the Bristol County Savings Bank branch.
The district attorney’s office said Castillo then walked into the bank, showed the teller a gun and demanded $1,000.
After the teller complied, Castillo ran out of the bank with sunglasses, a hat, a gun and $1,000, the woman told police.
He then instructed his date to step on the gas.
The woman said she panicked and drove until she spotted sirens and police cars behind her.
She pulled over and left her car, while Castillo remained inside, according to CNN.
When law enforcement attempted to apprehend Castillo, he “violently struggled” and spit on officers.
Almost four years after the robbery, Castillo was sentenced to three years in state prison for the robbery .
And two years in the Bristol County House of Corrections for his aggressive encounter with the officers
