NEW YORK (AP) — Two men have been arrested in a robbery scam that lured victims in the Bronx through a dating website.
Police say the robberies took place in December and January. They say the six victims were ambushed after they communicated with a woman on an online dating site and agreed to meet her at a location in the Bronx.
The victims were beaten and robbed of their possessions, including cellphones and cash.
Police say a third man is also wanted in connection with the robberies.
