A 26-year-old man met with a woman from a dating website early Wednesday who ended up robbing him at the intersection Lois Avenue and Broadmoor, according to a Columbus police report.
Authorities said he was able to escape the incident, which happened between 4 and 4:25 a.m., without injury.
Officers said they were called to the area around 4:28 a.m. that day and spoke to the victim on the scene.
The man told responding officers that he agreed to meet with a woman he met through a dating website called “Plenty of Fish,” and she told him she would pick him up in a black Nissan Altima. The woman drove to their meeting spot at intersection of Lois Avenue and Broadmoor Drive dressed in a black jacket with pink and white pajamas pants, police noted.

When the victim got into the vehicle, a man wearing a black hoodie allegedly pointed a pistol at him and told him to empty his pockets.
“(The victim) stated that they drove down about four blocks and the male subject told him to get out and don’t turn around or he would be shot,” police wrote in the report.
Authorities said the suspects, who haven’t been identified, stole $10 in cash and a cellphone from the victim.
The case remains under investigation.
