A man was allegedly threatened and robbed by a machete-wielding fake escort in north London after agreeing to meet through a website.

The Metropolitan Police said the 20-year-old victim contacted the suspect, who appears to be male, on a website advertising escorts towards the end of January.

The force is appealing for information on the perpetrator, with officials believing there may be other victims who have yet to come forward.

The Met said the victim shifted their communication to a messaging app, where the couple agreed to pay a cash fee and met in a remote area of ​​Enfield on the Essex border, in a location with little through traffic or pedestrians.

However, a few minutes after the meeting, the “escort” pulled a machete from his waistband, pushed the victim to the ground and demanded that the money discussed online be handed over.

He then told the victim he would kill him if he told anyone what had happened.

PC Harriet Rapley, of the North Area Command Robbery Unit, said: “I think there may be other victims who have not yet spoken to police for reasons of their own.

“I would encourage anyone who thinks they have encountered this person to at least get in touch with us so we can make sure you are supported.”

Anyone with information can email, call 101 or tweet @metcc quoting 6782/25JAN.
