Online Date Goes Violent: Fresno Man Robbed By Date
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) —
A man who thought he was going on a date with a Fresno woman he met on an online dating site ended up with a gun in his face and robbed.
Now three people are behind bars for the crime.
It happened last month at a home near Barstow and Blackstone avenues. Police say that's where the man went to meet his "date."
Investigators say, Brittnie Saunier was there waiting, but soon after she was joined by Amanda Battazzi and local gang member George Flores.
Police say Flores pulled out a gun, took the man's wallet and cleaned out his bank account after forcing him to give up his personal identification number.
Investigators say they were able to track down and arrest all three.
The three now face robbery, carjacking, kidnapping, and conspiracy charges.
