Woman uses online dating site to lure man to armed robbery setup

A late-night meeting with a woman he met on an online dating site ended with a man being robbed at gunpoint by her and two men, according to news reports. 

The victim went to meet the woman, who went by the  name “TRAPGIRL” on PlentyofFish.com, about 1 a.m. Tuesday at the Willow Creek Apartments, where she told him she lived, the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reported. 

When he arrived at the apartment complex, he spotted the woman and walked toward her, only to be met by two men who aimed guns at him and demanded his belongings, according to the paper. 

The suspects made off with the man’s $179 cellphone and the keys to his 2001 Chevy Malibu, the Ledger-Enquirer reported. The woman and one of the men drove off in the victim’s car. The second man drove away in a four-door car. 

Police said the woman is 5-foot-5 with a medium build. One of the men was described as 6-foot tall with a beard, and the other had tattoos on his chest and arms.
