Two unidentified suspects are wanted in Atlanta after a man was robbed at gunpoint during a dating app meet-up, according to police.

Shortly after they arrived, the suspect pulled out the gun and said: “Give me the car and everything you got.”

The suspect then drove off in the victim’s car, police said. It was later recovered.
