The Oshkosh Police Department has investigated two separate robberies in which a victim has corresponded with the suspect or suspects on MeetMe.com, a social network dating website.

The robberies occurred in December 2015 and in January 2016 in Oshkosh, and it is believed there are possibly more robberies that have gone unreported. Two individuals are in custody for the January 2016 robbery; and charges are pending for the December 2015 incident.

In each incident, the victim had been in contact with the suspect or suspects after responding to their profile and agreed to meet. The victims were then robbed; however, no one was injured during the incidents. It is believed that victims were targeted in the Fox Valley area, including Oshkosh.

Oshkosh Police ask those who were on MeetMe.com and were a victim of a robbery that has not been reported to contact Detective April Hinke at 920-236-5703.
