The first robbery occurred Jan. 25 after a man said he met Green on the Plenty of Fish dating app and took her out. When the two returned to the apartment complex, two men with guns approached the car they were in, police said.

The men got into the car and told the victim to drive, officials said. When they arrived at a location outside the Riverdale city limits, the men robbed the victim, assaulted him and stole his car, police said.

The second robbery occurred Wednesday about 10:15 p.m. when a man who met Green on the Tagged dating app arrived at the apartment complex to pick her up, authorities said.

As he arrived, two men with handguns jumped into his car, authorities said. A struggle ensued between the gunmen and their intended target, but the man was able to escape unharmed and call police.

Green is being held without bond in the Clayton County Jail on a single count of probation violation, records show.

Authorities are still searching for the two men involved in the robberies. Anyone with information on their identities or whereabouts is asked to call Riverdale police at 770-909-5441.
