Two suspects wanted in social media date ruse

- Police are searching for two suspects who investigators said used a social media account to lure a victim so they could rob him.

It happened in the 200 block of Wadley Street on November 20. That is where Atlanta police said the teenage victim was supposed to meet a young woman for a date he had set up through social media. Instead, investigators said he was being set up.

The woman got into the teen’s car and drove for a few minutes before police said she asked the young man if they could pick up her brother. He agreed, but investigators said when the purported brother got into the vehicle, the young lady said he belonged to a gang, had a firearm and told the young man to get in the backseat.

The pair then drove the teen to the Oakland City MARTA station, where police said they ordered him out before driving off with his 2014 Honda.

Police are circulating an image of a young woman who went by the handle “NINIBRAZY” on Instagram. Investigators describe her as being between 5’1’ and 5’2” with a small build and may frequent the Oakland City area.

Police are offering a reward up to $2,000 for information about the lady in the picture.
