Virginia Beach, Va. - A promise of love led to armed robbery.

Police say four men picked up women on Northampton Boulevard and invited them to a hotel only to rob the women at gunpoint.

Their victims, according to police, were solicited for “intimate encounters.”

But those encounters turned out to be armed robberies.

Shannon Lindsey, Antonio Williams and Timothy Ferguson are three of four men charged with robbery and use of a firearm after they allegedly stole money and other valuables from women on three different occasions.

The crimes happened in several different hotels off Northampton Blvd between April 14 and 24th.

But the case is not closed. Police are still investigating to find out if there are any more victims.
