COLUMBIA, TN (WSMV) -

A Columbia man accused of luring and robbing victims after meeting them on a dating website was arrested Sunday.

Police in Columbia arrested 19-year-old Cavayah Hancock. He is charged with two counts of aggravated robbery.

On Aug. 7, a Williamson County resident reported that he had met a woman on the dating site and she had given him directions to her home on Oak Park Drive in Columbia. When the victim arrived at the home, he was reportedly robbed by a black male with his hand covered, indicating he had a gun.

On Aug. 10, a Lawrence County resident reported a similar incident using the same website, but with a different screen name for the offender.

Investigators linked both crimes together and identified Hancock as the suspect.

The investigation into these incidents is still ongoing. Anyone with any additional information is asked to call the Columbia Police Department at (931) 380-2721.
