MENLO PARK — A man was the victim of an armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon Friday evening, the Menlo Park Police Department said.

Officers received word about the attack in the 3600 block of Haven Avenue at around 5:55 p.m., according to a news release. When police arrived, they found a 35-year-old man suffering from injuries after being pistol-whipped, punched and kicked by the attackers.

Police learned the man had been attacked while he was with a woman he met on a dating app. He and the woman were sitting inside his parked car when two men approached, pulled him out of the car and attacked him. The two men then took cash from the victim and left with the woman, who went with them willingly, police said.

Police said they were unable to find any of the attackers after searching the area. All three suspects were described as being in their early 20s, according to the news release.

The man who was attacked received medical aid from police before being taken to a hospital for further treatment, police said.
