— A man is charged with robbing another man at gunpoint after he showed up at a Bradenton residence to meet a woman he met at a bar, authorities said.

The 21-year-old victim showed up at the home in the 2900 block of Eighth Street West around 4:30 a.m. "to hang out with a female whom he just met at the bar," according to a Manatee County Sheriff's Office report.

Instead, when he showed up he was robbed by 46-year-old Samuel Rosario at gunpoint, deputies said.

Rosario was found and arrested without incident, the sheriff's office reports.
