Chilliwack: Two local people are facing charges after being arrested by RCMP for an alleged on-line dating robbery.
The charges stem from a call received by the Chilliwack RCMP on April 5, 2018 around 4:30 p.m. to report a person had been robbed at knife point while visiting an apartment in the 9400-block of Cook Street.
Officers arrived at the address where their investigation led them to evidence linking an on-line dating site and a pair of individuals to the robbery. The suspects were quickly located and taken into custody by police.
Alexis Kasey Nicole Neill, 25, and Kyle James Wall, 27 each face one charge of robbery.
“RCMP caution that everyone you meet on-line may not be who they represent themselves to be. Use discretion when going out on those first dates,” says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD.
