KENT — Kent police say a robber used a phone app to set up dates with gay men at remote locations and then robbed them at gunpoint.

Assistant Chief Pat Lowery says the 32-year-old man arrested last Thursday at his Kent apartment is accused of two robberies and suspected of three more in Seattle.

Lowery told The News Tribune there may be other victims and they should contact police.
