A 19-year-old man from South Fulton, Georgia, Zechariah Warren, has been taken into custody by the police on Wednesday, over allegations of luring several gay men through the dating app, Grindr, and then robbing them at gunpoint. Despite not being charged with any crime yet, the police have linked him to six of the reported robberies and expect more victims to come forward.
The police chief, Keith Meadows, expressed his shock at the allegations against Warren and promised that the police will work with the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office and other federal agencies to further investigate the case and bring the culprit to justice.
Victims reported that Warren lured them to meet him at the Camelot Club Condominiums along the Old National Highway after communicating with him on Grindr. Once they arrived, they were robbed at gunpoint. South Fulton Police Lieutenant Ronnie Wyatt warned people about the dangers of meeting up with strangers from dating apps, particularly in unfamiliar locations. He emphasized the importance of taking precautions and exercising caution before meeting someone for the first time.
Public Information Officer, Police Lieutenant Jubal Rogers, also added that predators often lurk online and reminded dating app users to be cautious and report any suspicious activity to the local law enforcement.
In conclusion, it is crucial to thoroughly research and verify the identity of someone before meeting them in person, especially if you met them through a dating app. Taking precautions can prevent dangerous situations and ensure your personal safety.
