Glenford Williams, 19, contacted three adult men on social-networking site Mocospace.com, according to Sunrise Police Department arrest reports.

He went by the name 'Diana' and asked them to meet him at the Boardwalk Apartments at 2903 Northwest 60th Avenue, Apt. 222 on separate occasions in June and July, the reports said.

Once the victims arrived at the apartment complex, Williams approached them wearing a gray hoodie, blue jeans and a ski mask, holding a handgun and demanding their money, according to the reports.
