Multiple 7-Eleven Gas Stations Robbed In Crime Wave: Police Phoenix Police Department

A man who showed up at a hotel for a Tinder date was robbed of thousands of dollars and his belongings by an armed couple in Phoenix, Arizona.

The victim, whose identity has been withheld, reportedly matched with a woman named "Sonya" on Tinder and showed up at an Embassy Suites hotel room in Phoenix for a date. However, when he reached the hotel, instead of meeting with his Tinder date, he was welcomed into the room by the armed couple Jose Sandoval Jaquez, 32, and Crystal Hulsey, 33, New York Post reported.

When the victim made it to the room, the male suspect, Jaquez, pointed a gun at the victim and demanded his property. The victim was then forced to hand over his cell phone, identification cards, social media accounts, PIN code, and bank account information. Following this, the suspects ordered the victim to drive them to a nearby Chase Bank. The suspects then kicked him out and left with his vehicle.

According to the victim, $900 was taken from Chase Bank on Sept. 17 from the drive through and a total of $3,000 had been taken from his account since then.

Based on the information officers obtained from the hotel room bookings and the usernames with which the suspects made withdrawals from the victim's bank account, the officers identified Jaquez and Hulsey as the suspects.

After stealing the victim's car, the couple used the car to drive to California and Las Vegas before police officers in Vegas tried to pull them over. The couple then ditched the vehicle and fled on foot, and the victim’s car was reportedly found by the officers on Sept. 25 with a gun inside.

Days after this, Phoenix police discovered an online escort advertisement that matched Hulsey's phone number and set up a meeting location. The officers then identified her in a Nissan Rogue driven by Jaquez at a La Quinta Inn and attempted to apprehend the suspects. However, the couple drove off initiating a pursuit. During the pursuit, Jaquez and Hulsey stopped the car and carjacked the driver of another vehicle before driving off in that car. However, the pair, who were spotted driving on the wrong side of the road, collided with another vehicle, Fox News reported.

After crashing, even though they tried to carjack another vehicle, law enforcement arrested them and took them into custody.

Following the incident, Jaquez and Hulsey both face multiple charges, including assault, armed robbery with a deadly weapon, robbery, and two counts of vehicle theft.
