An Aiken woman is facing charges for taking part in a strong-arm theft in the form of a mob attack near a playground and giving a minor drugs on June 4. 

Briasia Mason, 18, of Aiken was charged with strong-arm robbery and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to jail records. 

On June 5, police interviewed a victim who reported being "jumped" while she was near a playground at 1223 York St. NE, according to an Aiken Department of Public Safety incident report. 

During the incident, the offenders took the victim's iPhone, valued at $500, and $40 in cash, the victim reported. 

Mason allegedly participated in the assault by mob and assaulted the victim, an arrest warrant states. 

Warrants further state the suspect offered marijuana to a 13-year-old on the same day as the incident. 

Mason was charged Wednesday and was taken to the Aiken County detention center where she was being held as of Friday afternoon.
