Hooking up may be a common norm in dating culture today but the “dates” don’t always go as planned. One Tinder user learned the hard way after his hook-up with a woman in Colorado took a disturbing turn.
Lauren Marie Dooley is a 22-year-old Colorado woman charged with felony second-degree kidnapping, two counts of second-degree assault, menacing, and false imprisonment. She apparently pulled a knife and tried to choke her Tinder date before ordering DoorDash.
Colorado Springs Police Department officers were dispatched to an area outside of Colorado Springs after reports of an “unknown call-for-service,” according to the report.
“Upon our arrival, residents at the apartment advised there was a naked male in the parking lot that needed help,” the affidavit states. “Officers located the victim who was naked and appeared to be bleeding from a laceration on his left arm. He was also actively backing away from the suspect. .. Dooley. .. who appeared to have blood smeared on her arms and hands. The victim exclaimed that Lauren tied him up and cut him.”
The 911 operator could hear the victim, a man who remains anonymous at this time, on the open line saying he was bleeding and telling someone “because you cut me” and “you’re going to kill me.”
According to the document, the victim explained that Dooley and he were engaging in sexual intercourse on the living-room couch before she proceeded to duct tape his wrists and ankles together. He “found it odd, but consented to it.”
Dooley then ordered him to go into the bedroom. She threatened him with a kitchen knife, the victim explained to the police. “Fearing Lauren would harm him with the knife, he obeyed and got into her bed. Lauren climbed on top of him and proceeded to use the knife to cut his left shoulder,” the affidavit says.
“Lauren then used both her hands to apply direct pressure to the victim’s throat for approximately 20 seconds, making it difficult to breath. Lauren stopped, but only to procure a belt that she then placed around the victim’s neck,” the affidavit continues. “She tightened the belt for another 20 seconds, once more making it difficult to breath. When she took it off, she checked neck for a pulse.”
She then ordered takeout via DoorDash. She threatened to kill the man if he tried to scream at the delivery driver. She ate her food and got into bed with him.
