This office is investigating three home invasion robberies that have occurred in California in the past six months, each linked to online dating sites. Two of the robberies stemmed from contact on a dating site specifically for married persons, and the third involved a married person who classified themselves as “currently separated” on a different site. As these are pending investigations, we are not releasing further details. We believe all three victims were followed home after a second date or encounter.
I would ask that you please contact this office if you have information regarding a similar robbery, even if it has not been reported to law enforcement. Additionally, our office provides monitoring services to determine if a spouse or partner is utilizing these online dating portals.
