Chicago Cops Bust Man In Grindr Stun Gun Robberies

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:

A 20-year-old Sauk Village man was charged in connection to recent robberies of men who arranged dates through the online app Grindr at Near North Side hotels.

Davion Johnson was arrested Monday and charged in three incidents, one of which involved him allegedly threatening a 42-year-old man with a stun gun and stealing his property at a hotel on Jan. 23 in the 600 block of North Lake Shore Drive, Chicago police said.

Police issued a community alert last week warning of a pattern of at least four robberies of older men in hotel rooms. A police spokeswoman on Tuesday could not say if detectives were seeking a second suspect in the other robberies.
