Detectives with the Salt Lake City Police Department’s Special Victims Unit are investigating a reported rape involving a dating app, according to a newly unsealed search warrant obtained by 2News.

A woman reported to police that she was raped by a man she met on the Bumble app.

According to the warrant, the pair were supposed to meet and go out for hot chocolate in early November.

Trigger warning: This report contains information about a reported rape that may be upsetting to some readers.

The victim told police that when the other Bumble user arrived at her residence to pick her up, he “made an excuse to enter,” and made small talk for a while before he “eventually got up, turned off all the lights, and grabbed the victim by her wrists, took her to the bedroom and proceeded to rape the victim multiple times,” the warrant states.

The victim deleted her Bumble account after the encounter, so detectives contacted the company with a search warrant to retrieve messages and other potential evidence.

Det. Greg Wilking with SLCPD told 2News the case is still active, but an arrest has not been made.

More than 40 million Americans use online dating services or apps, according to RAINN.

RAINN offers tips to increase your safety when meeting up with someone you met online:

  • Ask to video chat before you meet up. This allows you to confirm they are who they represent themselves to be on their dating profile.
  • Tell a friend where you’re going, and send them a screenshot of the profile of the person you’re meeting. If you change locations throughout the date, update your friend as well.
  • Meet in a public place like a coffee shop, restaurant, or bar — but not one where you could be isolated from people, like a park
  • Keep your limits in mind when consuming alcohol on a first date, and avoid taking drugs
  • Ask a bartender or waiter for help if you need a distraction so you can leave safely, or if you need someone to contact police or a ride home without your date knowing
  • Control your own transportation so you can leave whenever you want. Download a few ride share apps in case you have car trouble, and make sure your phone is fully charged.
  • Trust your instincts and leave or cut off communication if you feel unsafe. Do not worry about being rude

“If you felt uncomfortable or unsafe during the date, remember you can always unmatch, block, or report your match after meeting up in person which will keep them from being able to access your profile in the future,” according to RAINN. The organization also states:

“Sexual assault and harassment are never acceptable and are never the victim’s fault no matter what you were wearing, drinking, or whom you were with.”
