A Colorado Springs man arranged a liaison with a woman he had just contacted on Craigslist.
But when he showed up for the date about 9:30 p.m. — behind Pleasures Entertainment, 3425 E. Platte Ave. — two men robbed him at gunpoint and he became a crime statistic instead, according to a Colorado Springs police report.
Colorado Springs police warned people “to be cautious when meeting new people online.”
“And to be wise with meeting locations,” the report says.
The male victim, whose identity was not released, contacted the woman on Craigslist. They agreed to meet “in the back lot” of the adult entertainment store Tuesday night.
When the man arrived, however, he only was able to meet the woman briefly.
Two men approached the victim’s car. One put a pistol to his neck. The other removed his wallet and cash.
Afterward, the man’s Craigslist date climbed into a white Cadillac with the two robbers and drove east on Platte Avenue, the report says.
No information was released about any arrests. The case is still under investigation.
