A metro Atlanta teen is thankful to be alive after meeting up with a woman he met online.
The 19-year-old, who wanted to remain anonymous, says he met a woman by the name of Destiny on the dating app Plenty of Fish.
He tells CBS46 Destiny and another female came to pick him up at home. The three started driving but eventually parked in an area of Bankhead after the women said their GPS was having problems. Moments later, three armed men approached his window.
"They had guns, he's shoving it at me. It's either they're trying to take me to some house and kill me or I do what they say [and] give them the stuff and maybe live," said the teen.
The crooks set him free after literally taking the clothes off his back.
The teen was able to flag down an officer for help and now he's hoping his experience is a welcome warning to others using dating services.
Atlanta Police are still searching for all the people involved in the incident.
If you have any information regarding this case, contact police.
