Chaoyang police have recently arrested six people suspected to be a part of a robbery gang, the Beijing Times reported. Two of the suspects were women who allegedly asked men out on dates and stole from them.

From January 6 to 8, two men separately reported to police they had been robbed by women they met on an online dating site. Both had met them near Panjiayuan, Chaoyang district at a remote location. The suspects stole the men's wallets, forced them to reveal their bank card passwords and withdrew tens of thousands of yuan.

Police reported that all of the money had already been squandered by the time they picked the suspects up. The case is still under investigation.
