ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Police say a 19-year-old Georgia man was robbed, beaten and tied up in an Athens motel room where he met a woman for sex.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports (bit.ly/2179vfj) the victim was lured to the Travel Inn by a woman he met using the mobile dating app Tinder. Police say he told officers that after having sex with the woman, two men emerged from the bathroom and assaulted him.

According to police, the men beat the victim, used zip ties to bind his wrists and took his wallet. Then they put him in the trunk of his own car, which the robbers drove for a short distance before opening the trunk and running away.

The victim called police from a nearby home Sunday morning. No arrests have been announced.
