Man robbed on way to meet Internet date

A Hamilton man told Middletown police he was robbed of $150 Saturday night while he was walking to meet a woman he met on the Internet.

He said he met a woman, 5-foot-1, 180 pounds, on a dating site and they communicated for about four months. He was supposed to pick her up at her apartment in the 3800 block of Helton Drive, he told police.

As the man walked toward the apartment, while carrying his 1-year-old daughter, he was approached by a heavy set man, about 5-foot-10, who demanded his money.

The man said the suspect acted like he had a gun, though no weapon was displayed.

After the alleged robbery, the woman wouldn’t answer her apartment door and blocked the man from the dating site, according to the report.

Police were unable to find anyone matching the woman’s or the suspect’s descriptions.
