A 29-YEAR-OLD Westmoorings woman and a 35-year-old Debe man were arrested and charged for robbing several men who were lured via popular dating websites.

Police said they received reports from several men who said that on separate occasions, they were lured by a woman via online dating websites, to West Park Villas in Westmoorings with promises of a “good time.”

On reaching the apartment, the men said, they were invited inside by the woman only to be confronted by a gunman who would then rob them of cash, jewellery and other valuables.

Police from the St James CID investigated and later arrested the couple.

They were charged on Monday by WPC Harry with false imprisonment, robbery with violence, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and demanding monies by menace.

The couple appeared before Port of Spain magistrate Maureen Baboolal on Tuesday.

The woman was granted bail in the sum of $200,000 while the man was denied bail and advised of his right to apply to a Judge in Chambers. The cases were then adjourned.
