Huntsville police say a man's home on Suzanne Terrace was robbed after he met a date online.

Police say the woman he met online brought three men to his home to rob him on July 13. Right now, they're looking for two suspects, 20-year-old Deonte Battle and 21-year-old Marqus Vance.

Marquail Johnson, 18, has already been found and arrested. 

Police say the woman and the suspects know each other. They say you need to do your homework before meeting someone in person after meeting online.

"If he would have checked Jailview, he would have seen the female had a history in there and it would have possibly deterred him from meeting her," said Lt. Michael Johnson with Huntsville police.

Police say the suspects got away with the victim's cell phone and his car keys. They haven't told us the woman's name, and say she isn't facing charges right now.
