HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) - Hamden police say a man was attacked and robbed at his home during an arranged meeting with an 18-year-old woman he met on an online dating site.

WVIT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/ZRAYYr) the man told police he invited the woman to stop by his apartment late Tuesday, and at some point she unlocked his front door for two male accomplices.

While the woman and the resident were in his bedroom, two other men came in and hit the victim on the back with a tire iron.

Police said the woman took several items including electronics, and fled with her accomplices. Police said one of the men jumped off a 25-foot-high balcony.

Police said when they arrived around 1 a.m. Wednesday the victim was treated for injuries to his back, nose and finger. He declined to go to a hospital.
