Police warn dating app users to be cautious

The St. Petersburg Police Department is warning people to be cautious when they meet up with people they’ve met on dating apps. Although they say the number of reported rapes in St. Petersburg has gone down slightly from 2017 to 2018, they have noticed a new trend. “Not only are we getting more people coming forward, and reporting rapes and crimes, which is good, we’re seeing a trend," said Yolanda Fernandez, a St. Petersburg Police Department representative.
