The Latin male is currently charged with four counts of Aggravated Robbery and is being held in the Dallas County Jail.

Since December 7, 2017, there have been three other robberies in the same area where victims were lured to the location after responding to posts on the “Grindr” dating app. Below are the dates and locations:

• Never go alone
• Always meet during the day
• Keep your cell phone close and be ready to call 911 at the first sign of trouble
