According to Miami police authorities, three Allapattah men are suspected of having used a gay hookup app to target a gay man, gain access to his home, and then rob him at gunpoint. Earlier this week Roger Euceda, 18, entered the victim’s home under the pretense of meeting for a date when he pulled a gun on the man and ordered him to lay face down on his bed. Euceda then invited in an unnamed 17-year old accomplice and the two teenagers proceeded to raid the man’s home.
Authorities were alerted when neighbors of the victim overheard commotion next door. Police showed up at the scene just when Euceda and the other robber were rushing with bags to a car where a third accomplice was waiting. A brief chase ensued and both teenagers were apprehended. The driver of the car is still at large.
