DOVER, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Not everyone expects to find true love on their first date, but even less ever expect to get robbed.

A woman says her first date with a man she met online ended with him taking her dog and flat-screen television from her Dover, N.J. home.

Police told the Daily Record of Parsippany that the woman and the man had met on a dating website and went out Thursday night.

After returning to her home, the woman said she went into another room for an undisclosed amount of time, and when she returned, she discovered that he had left and took her Yorkshire Terrier named “Violet” as well as her TV with him.

The woman said her dog is valued at $4,000 and her TV is worth $3,000.

The thefts were reported early Friday. The woman, whose name was not released, only knew her date as “Joel” and believes he lives in Elizabeth, N.J.
