Police: Man robbed in Nashville following dating app meetup

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A man is accused of meeting another man on a dating app and then robbing him at a Nashville home.

Desmond Clements, 31, was arrested Sunday on charges of robbery, vandalism and criminal impersonation.

According to an arrest report, the victim met Clements on Jack'd, a location-based chat and dating app that caters to gay and bisexual men.

When the victim arrived at the suspect's home, Clements allegedly demanded $100 from the victim.

The victim reportedly told Clements that he did not have money on him, so Clements hopped into the victim's vehicle and told him that he "had friends with guns inside."

Metro police said the suspect drove the victim to an ATM on Main Street, where the victim was ordered to withdraw money.

The victim said Clements keyed his car and told him "the longer he took, the more damage he would cause to the car."

As the victim approached the ATM, he told a witness he was being robbed.

The witness left and called police who then showed up and took Clements into custody.

During the booking process, police said Clements laughed and told officers "you don't even have the real me because that isn't me."

Clements had outstanding warrants out of the Georgia, but no information has been released on those charges.
