A 22-year-old woman has been arrested in Colorado after allegedly giving a Tinder date oral sex, then tying him up with duct tape, stabbing him and throttling him.
Lauren Marie Dooley, 22, was arrested on September 28 after officers responded to an apartment in the 2500 block of East Cache La Poudre Street in Colorado Springs.
The victim, whose name is redacted in an affidavit published by Law and Crime, told police he ‘just met Lauren on Tinder’ hours before they met in person.
Dooley and the victim met at her apartment and hung out on her couch for a while, before she took off his clothes and performed oral sex on his.
Shortly after, the hookup turned sinister, it is alleged.

‘She then used duct tape to bind [the victim’s] wrists together and ankles together,’ the affidavit states.
‘[The victim] found it odd, but consented to it. However, when Lauren produced a kitchen knife and demanded he get into her bedroom, [the victim] no longer consented to staying at the residence.’
The woman accused in this matter then began to use the knife to ‘cut his left shoulder.’
‘Lauren then used both her hands to apply direct pressure to [the victim’s] throat for approximately 20 seconds, making it difficult to breathe.
‘Lauren stopped, but only to procure a belt that she then placed around [the victim’s] neck,’ according to a statement the victim provided.

Police did later find blood in the tub.

After falling asleep, the victim was able to retrieve the knife, which Dooley had left under the covers, and cut himself free. He was caught as he was trying to exit the apartment.

While this was happening, Dooley apparently ordered food from DoorDash and threatened the victim who she feared may have tried to escape.
‘If you scream or say anything, I’ll kill you,’ the woman told the victim.
She then forced the man to sit on her bed while she ate the food.

The two can be heard arguing as dispatch sends police and ambulance to the scene.
‘Officers located [the victim] who was naked and appeared to be bleeding from a laceration on his left arm,’ police said.
The victim ‘was also actively backing away from the suspect . . . Dooley . . . who appeared to have blood smeared on her arms and hand.’
Dooley has been charged with kidnapping, assault, menacing, and false imprisonment.
She faces up to 25 years in prison if found guilty.
The woman is set to be arraigned Thursday.
