There’s a new reason to be careful when it comes to who you go out with after meeting them on a dating site: the police are after a thief that’s been targeting lonely singles.
The serial lover, 41 year old David Kean, is being sought after for several offences committed against women he met on a popular dating website. One of his latest victims, a 41 year old woman from Derby, came back from visiting her parents on Christmas Eve last year, only to find both her television and a large quantity of cash stolen, her garage door damaged, and her erstwhile boyfriend mysteriously gone.
A spokesman from Derbyshire Police has issued a warning against Kean’s shenanigans, stating that the man is likely to be using a variety of dating sites in order to make contact with new victims. The man has used several aliases, such as David Jamieson, David Marshall, David Kayne, David Ross, and David Donald, indicating that he’s industrious if a bit unimaginative.
Keep an eye out for this one, ladies; Kean’s not the kind of man you want to take home to meet mum and dad. He’s a classic manipulator, worming his way into your heart before making off with your valuables, so be careful when it comes down to using online resources to find new dates.
Still, it’s only a matter of time before this fine, upstanding citizen makes a mistake and is caught. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, after all, so if you see a dating profile that looks a bit fishy, keep an eye on it, warn off your friends, and it can’t hurt to tip off the authorities, just in case.
