ANDERSON CO. (WATE) - Anderson County deputies arrested two teens after they allegedly used social media to rob and beat someone.

Shawn Summers, 18, and Kavonte Carson, 19, were taken into custody on Tuesday.

They're accused of luring a male victim to a mobile home park by pretending to be a woman through a fake dating site called meetme.com.

After the victim got out of his car, deputies say the two assaulted him with a hammer and a baseball bat, then robbed him of his phone and wallet.

The victim was taken to a hospital for his injuries.

The suspects were still being held in the Anderson County Jail as of Tuesday night.
