Woman allegedly set up her online date to get robbed, killed

Online dating took a dangerous turn for one Houston man last week. 

According to a KPRC report, Harris County deputies arrested 18-year-old Brittany Davis for allegedly setting up an online dating profile in order to lure a man to get robbed.

On June 29, the unidentified man arranged a date with Davis after connecting with her on Plenty of Fish, a popular online dating website.

The victim alleges that the two met up at an apartment complex when Davis received a suspicious phone call. That is when two armed men approached the male victim with guns drawn and began demanding money.

After a search yielded no cash, the two suspects began to argue with Davis and proceeded to order the victim to walk toward his vehicle. He subsequently was shot in the chest and played dead as the two suspects and his date fled.

The victim then called 911, attempted to drive away from the apartment complex toward the hospital and waited for police and an ambulance to arrive.

Investigators interviewed people at the apartment complex and were later able to identify Davis.

She has been formally charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. Her two co-conspirators remain at large.

In an interview with Houston’s ABC13, the victim claims he is officially “done with online dating.”
