Investigation into Tinder ‘rape’ in Dublin underway

A Garda investigation into a woman alleging she was raped by a man she met over Tinder is currently underway.

The woman says that she met the man in a coffee shop in Dublin last Thursday after talking to him over the popular dating app for four days.

However, things took a sinister turn when the man forced the woman, who is believed to be in her 30’s, into his car before driving to the M50 where the terrifying sex crime took place.

It has been reported that the man drove around looking for a suitable secluded spot before the rape took place.

Following this, the alleged rapist dropped the woman home.

The woman was understandably terrified. 

This is the first reported incident of its kind in relation to Tinder and is a reminder of how careful we all need to be when using dating apps.
