SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — San Bernardino police say carjackers are luring victims through a dating app.

Police tell the San Bernardino Sun that a man was carjacked Tuesday after he used the app to meet two women in a cul-de-sac. Investigators say he was talking to the women when three armed men robbed him and drove off in his car.

Investigators say three men robbed another man last Saturday when he arranged to meet a woman in the same area. Police say the men didn’t manage to steal that victim’s car and ran away instead.
