LINCOLNTON, N.C. - A Taylorsville man was assaulted and robbed after meeting a man at the Lincoln County Walking Trail in the 2600 block of Laboratory Road, Lincolnton today.

The 34-year-old victim, who had met the man on a social dating website, agreed to meet with the suspect around 4 a.m. on May 22, 2019. The victim told deputies that after the two met in a parking lot they walked down the trail for about five minutes before going through a wooded area to the South Fork River. They sat on the river bank talking until the suspect said he needed to go to the restroom.

The suspect walked behind the victim and struck him in the left side of the face. The victim blacked out for a short period of time and when he woke-up he saw the suspect running down the path where they had walked in.

The victim said the suspect took his cap and head light, $300 in cash and vape pen and tubes. Because he was not familiar with the area he drove around for about 30 minutes before stopping at a convenience store in the 1400 block of East Main Street, Lincolnton, NC. Law enforcement and Lincoln County EMS were dispatched to the scene. The victim was treated on the scene then transferred to Atrium – Lincoln for additional treatment for a laceration over his eye.

According to the victim, the two men met on a social dating site last night (May 21, 2019) and arranged for the meeting today. The suspect goes by the profile name of “Ethan” on the dating website.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect is asked to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 704-732-9050, the Lincoln County Communications Center at 704-735-8202 or Lincolnton/Lincoln County Crime Stoppers at 704-736-8909.
