Police probe two Tinder date attacks in Christchurch
A Tinder date that went wrong in Christchurch is the second to be probed by police in less than three months.
Another woman has alleged she was raped on a Tinder date in July, and wants others to be aware of the dangers when using the application.
Senior Sergeant Craig Scott said a man and woman met over the online dating app when an alleged assault happened at a house in New Brighton about 1am on Friday.
"Police have been called to attend it, and a suspect has been spoken to by us."
Scott did not know if the man would face charges yet.
Another woman, who is in her 20s, said she was raped by a man she met through Tinder in late July.
It was the third date, so she felt she was safe. The attack took place in Sumner, she said.
She lodged a complaint with police, who were investigating, she said.
"It's important for people to be aware and cautious of Tinder. Make sure you really know a person before you go and spend time with them," she said.
"On Tinder, you have no common connection."
Police confirmed they had received a complaint over the July incident but could make no further comment.
