Man robbed after meeting couple online for sexual encounter at motel near Covina

COVINA — A man who rendezvoused with a couple for sex at a San Dimas motel after meeting them on Craigslist ended up robbed at knifepoint early Thursday, officials said.
The crime was reported about 3 a.m. at the Evergreen Inn, 20022 E. Arrow Highway in an unincorporated county area near Covina, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. David Vega said.
After contacting the couple through Craigslist, the 39-year-old Monterey Park man met with them at a park before they agreed to go to the motel so the victim and female suspect could have sex while the male suspect watched, officials said. There was no initial mention of money changing hands.
“When the victim disrobed, the suspects took the victim’s clothes, money and vehicle,” Vega said.
The male robber put a knife to the victim’s throat, while the woman collected his belongings and car keys, he added. The robbers were also believed to have a gun with them.
Vega said the robbers fled in the victim’s older-model SUV, which was found abandoned in Covina early Thursday.
The male robber was described as Latino, about 29 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall, and 230 pounds, Vega said. The female robber was also Latina and about 29 years old. She was 5 feet 4 inches tall and about 140 pounds.
The investigation was ongoing.
