Chicago, IL - Chicago police have arrested a 20-year-old south suburban man following a series of robberies in downtown hotels involving victims he met on Grindr.

According to, prosecutors have charged Davion Johnson of Sauk Village with felony armed robbery, felony robbery, and misdemeanor theft in connection with three separate cases from Nov. 5, 2019, Nov. 6, 2019, and on Jan. 23. 

Police said Johnson robbed victims of their property after meeting up with them on the dating app. 

Johnson is due in bond court Tuesday afternoon.

As CWBChicago reported exclusively last week, Johnson was previously arrested at the Inn of Chicago, 162 East Ohio, in December after he allegedly hooked up with a 65-year-old man from Grindr and then tried to steal property from the man's hotel room. Johnson was then freed on $150 bond.
