against the will

Element of robbery. As the phrase is used in the definition of the crime of robbery, which includes a taking against the will, it must be construed not only as to be evidenced by resistance, but also as meaning that resistance would have been offered, but was quelled either by actual force or violence, which was of itself sufficient to prevent resistance by disabling the victim or by threat sufficient to frighten the victim or by threat sufficient to frighten the victim into compliance. 46 Am J1st Rob § 22. Against the will of prosecutrix in rape case, See against her will.
