BOSTON (AP) — Police say a rendezvous arranged on an online dating app ended poorly for a man in Boston after his date pulled a stun gun and robbed him.

Authorities say the man met the woman at a local hotel Tuesday morning. He told officers the two spoke for about half an hour before his date took out a Taser stun gun. The woman then went through the man’s pockets, stealing about $100 in cash.

The man notified hotel security after escaping the hotel room. Police say that when officers arrived, the woman initially denied having met the victim. A pink Taser was located on the woman’s luggage and she was arrested.

Police identified the woman as 24-year-old Selena Rivera-Apodaca of Kent, Washington. She is expected to be arraigned on a charge of armed robbery.

It was unclear Wednesday if she was represented by an attorney.
