Police Warn Gay Men After Dating-Site-Related Robberies

Halifax, Canada, January 7, 2011 /LGBT News/ Police in Halifax are warning people -- especially gay men -- to be careful using online dating sites following two recent robberies that officers are linking to the social forums.

The first occurred on Sunday at 6:43 p.m. at Point Pleasant Park in Halifax, according to a police news release. A 35-year-old man picked up another man on Tower Road, after meeting him online. They drove to the park. Minutes later, two more men came up to the vehicle, threatened the victim and robbed him. Police are looking for a white man, about 20 years old with short dark hair who was wearing a dark coat and black jeans.

The second robbery occurred Thursday when a 29-year-old man picked up a man on Spring Garden Road whom he had met online and drove to the south end of Halifax. A few minutes later, several other men approached the vehicle, claimed they had a knife, stole the victim's wallet and fled.

Police say they believe the robberies are connected. They also believe there could be more victims.

Police are reminding those who use online dating sites to exercise caution when arranging to meet someone in person they know little about, regardless of the online dating service they use.

    Online dating should just be done online and ends there.I would never take a risk of meeting someone i do not know alone.
