During a press conference on Wednesday (5 April), representatives from the Atlanta police department opened up about the robberies and gave tips on how to stay safe.  “From February to May, we have had eight instances where male victims were lured to remote locations by use of the Grindr app,” said Sergeant Rodney Jones of the APD robbery unit. “The suspect would use the Grindr app to exchange and identify victims, trying to lure them to a dating location. “After the date concludes, the suspects will rob the victim, often taking their wallets, keys or even vehicles.” The crimes have reportedly taken place in Zone 1 and Zone 3 which are the Northwest and Southeast parts of Atlanta.
