JOHANNESBURG - A 21 year old woman in Pretoria has been arrested for robbery after she allegedly used an online dating site to lure a man to her home and then robbing him of his belongings.

It's understood the suspect invited the man into her flat in Sunnyside last weekend, where three of her accomplices robbed the man of his cellphone and an undisclosed amount of money.

The police's Daniel Mavimbela says the woman was arrested in her apartment during a raid.

“We urge the public to go back to basics when meeting with a stranger, when you meet someone from an online platform, do so at a public place.”
