Police say when the two met after midnight on Sunday, Oden took the cash, and then, at gunpoint, told the victim to get out of the car. Police say the victim refused, and a second male pulled the victim out of the car, where he was pistol whipped.

Oden is charged with firs-degree robbery, first-degree assault and conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery.
