Four Winnipeg teenagers have been charged in which police say was an online dating scam that ended in a car jacking.

Police say the teens created a fraudulent profile on an online dating site with the intent to lure a person to a location for a robbery.

A 24-year-old man contacted police on Monday who said he had made plans to meet a woman who he’d met on the dating website.

Police say he was still in his vehicle when a woman approached him, followed by three people who pepper-sprayed and threatened him.

All four of the accused drove away in his vehicle and took his personal belongings.

Two 15-year-olds and two 16-year-olds are charged with robbery and unauthorized possession of a weapon.
