BRAVO is Issuing the Following Alert for the Safety of the
LGBTQI Community of Central Ohio

BRAVO has recently received multiple reports of anti-LGBTQI pick-up related bias crimes. The incidents have occurred while meeting people using the website Adam4Adam and potentially other dating service websites/apps (i.e. Grindr, Scruff, Growlr, etc.). At this point it appears that assailant(s) are contacting individuals online and upon meeting, are robbing them and/or burglarizing their home. BRAVO has good reason to believe that these attacks are anti-LGBTQI motivated.

If you have been the victim of, or are aware of, similar assaults please contact BRAVO (614-294-7867) or the Columbus Police Department Sexual Abuse Squad (614-645-4701).

For further information BRAVO, can be reached at 614-294-7867 or 866-86-BRAVO. All reports to BRAVO are confidential and may be made anonymously.

Description of Perpetrators: unknown — presumed to be male
