Dangerous Date

There is a new reason to be very careful next time you go to meet a stranger.  A 22-year old woman met a man online and she ended up being raped and robbed by two men.

It happened near West 33rd and Denison.

A Cuyahoga County Grand Jury indicted Mark Levert for the rape and robbery.  A teenager is also facing charges, he'll likely be tried as an adult.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason says his office has pursued hundreds of cases with bad things happening when kids or adults get together after meeting people on-line.

Mason said,  "It's frightening.  As much as you do, and as much noise as you make, it continues. People don't have their guards up as they should."
