Connecticut man accused of raping woman he met on dating app

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man has been charged with raping a Massachusetts woman he met on a dating app.

New Haven police say they arrested 26-year-old Timothy Turner Jr., of Waterbury, early Monday after the 22-year-old woman called authorities. Officials say the woman met Turner on the dating app Tagged and invited her to a multifamily home where one of his relatives lives.

The woman says Turner pulled a gun on her and raped her on the second-floor landing.

Turner was charged with aggravated first-degree sexual assault and other crimes.

Turner is being held on bail and wasn’t immediately available to comment on the charges. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.

Police warned dating app users to be cautious and to not meet strangers in private, unfamiliar locations.
