Three people were arrested in Louisiana after a man was robbed when he went to meet a woman he was talking to on the dating website, backpage.com.

According to Houma Police, the meeting was planned for Friday at around 3 a.m. The woman, who was identified as 33-year-old Brandy Helms, invited the man over to her residence, where she put on music and asked him to take off his clothes.

Shortly after, Tyron Lee, 28, and Delano Jenkins, 21, stormed into the room and stole the man’s cellphone and money. They then forced him into his car and brought him to the bank, where they ordered him to take out money from his account, according to a police report from the Houma Police Department. From there, they returned to Helms’ Gibb Street residence and released the victim.

After police located the suspects, Helms, Lee and Jenkins were arrested for kidnapping, carjacking and robbery.
