A couple is facing charges of allegedly conspiring to rob a potential sex customer, Orange County authorities said Friday.

According to the Orange County district attorney's office, Megan Miko Wachi, 22, of Huntington Beach and her boyfriend, Michael Alexander Diaz, 21, of Fountain Valley, agreed to meet a man Wednesday in Cypress to exchange sexual acts for money.

When the man backed out of the deal, Diaz reportedly threatened him with a BB gun. The man, whose identity has not been released, shot Diaz in the stomach with a firearm, then called police.

The couple fled in a white pickup truck, but were arrested by Cypress police Wednesday night.

Diaz remains hospitalized. Wachi was being held on $50,000 bail.
