Pair use dating app to lure, rob men, police say

Chentel Dancer, 19; Ervin Jackson, 22, accused of robbing 4 men in 2 days


SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police arrested a man and a woman who they said robbed four men by using a dating app to lure them.

Chentel Dancer, 19, and Ervin Jackson, 22, are charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, police said.

According to police, the pair solicited the men through the app Plenty of Fish. 

Police said on Feb. 15 and 16, Dancer met with men at Doc Browns Bar on the city's West Side under the premise of a date. That's when Dancer introduced Jackson as her brother, claiming he needed a ride.

Police said the pair then robbed the men at gunpoint of their property.

U.S. marshals obtained information that led them to Jackson, and police said Dancer was also at the location and matched the description of the woman they were seeking. Police said they later had enough evidence to make both arrests.
