A married couple has been arrested for allegedly robbing and beating a man they met on a sugar daddy website at a hotel.
Police say the wife, 22-year-old Cameron Perez, met the victim online on a site where “males meet females who are interested in finding someone to provide financial support,” KTLA reported.
The two arranged to meet on Dec. 24, 2021 at a Thousand Oaks hotel in California, where they spent some time together before the husband arrived at the room, according to KTLA.
The husband, 22-year-old Jonathan Perez, “proceeded to use a weapon to batter the victim before taking a large sum of money and property from the victim,” the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office officials said, KTLA reported.
The couple then fled together from the hotel, according to KTLA.
Detectives identified Cameron and Jonathan Perez as suspects in the robbery and found they lived in the city of San Ramon in Northern California, KTLA reported.
San Ramon police found the suspects’ vehicle at a local hotel and took the couple into custody on Jan. 27, according to KTLA.
Cops say Jonathan Perez had a loaded firearm on him when he was contacted by officers, KTLA reported.
Both suspects were arrested on suspicion of robbery and conspiracy and booked into the Contra Costa County Jail, according to KTLA.
