In an apparent case of “looking for love in all the wrong places,” police say a man seeking a relationship online wound up being the target of two robbers. After the man—who had spoken with a woman online and arranged to meet her in person—arrived at the agreed-upon location last Thursday, he was surprised to see the woman show up with another man. The two then attempted to rob the victim, who opened fire on the woman’s accomplice in self-defense, Fox 5 Vegas reports.
The wounded robber was later treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Both the wounded robber and the woman involved in the scam were charged with conspiracy to commit robbery. Additionally, the would-be robber was booked on one count of robbery with a deadly weapon.
