OKC Woman Target Through Dating Website Tinder

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma City Police said a metro woman was targeted by a man using the dating website “Tinder.” 

The woman wants to remain anonymous, but is speaking out in hopes it will prevent other young women from being victims. 

She said 29-year-old Jarvis Dean demanded money from her during a date late Monday morning. According to the victim, when Dean threatened to beat her, she sprayed him with mace and called 911. 

Police caught up to Dean a short time later.  Dean was hiding in a closet at his girlfriend’s apartment near NW 122nd Street and N Penn Avenue.

“There were a lot of red flags I should have paid attention to,” the woman said. 

Police said Jarvis Dean is wanted for a parole violation in Escambia County, Florida.
