Atlanta Police are searching for a man accused of shooting and robbing a woman he met through a dating website called Badoo.com.

The police have identified the man as Dontarius Turner aka “Cash,” 22, of Memphis Tennessee.

CBS46 reported that the 34-year-old woman was shot in her face after Turner robbed her on their way back from a Waffle House on Dec. 24.

Authoritiesย say the two were headed back to a hotel when Turner pulled a gun and told her to pull over and give him all of her belongings. Even though she followed Turner’s instructions, he shot her in the face and then tried to shoot her a second time as she fled on foot. Turner was able to escape in the woman’s black 1999 Jeep Cherokee with a Rhode Island license plate.

“She is very lucky,” Maj. Ernest Strozier said. “When you meet somebody on social media, you don’t know who you are meeting. You see a picture of a person but you are not for sure if that is the person or not. So, you need to meet them in a public place while people are around.”

The victim’s name is not being released to the public. But, investigators did disclose she is at home recovering with a swollen face. The bullet went through her cheek and out behind her ear. The bullet missed her carotid artery by inches.

Dontarius Turner is wanted for aggravated assault, armed robbery and weapons charges. Atlanta police is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for any information leading to Turner’s arrest and indictment.

    He is a total lowlife thug. Assuming he is guilty, I hope he gets life in prison.

    It is so important to not trust anyone you meet online or anywhere. Do not go off alone with them, and do whatever background check possible. It’s crazy how these miscreants are operating.

      SAY THAT to HIGH heavens! Their are some serious sociopaths and manipulators online for sure. CAnnot be so trusting to think you really know someone online. Hell, its hard enough trying to meet decent people offline.

      I totally agree. I remember when some friends would tell me about some guy she was talking to and when I’d ask her questions like “Where does he work at?” “What’s his last name?” She would look at me funny like “I didn’t ask ALL THAT!” And I’m looking at her like you’ve been talking to him on the phone for such and such a time and you don’t know his last name or nothing about his personal life? What the hell are you all talking about? I mean damn at least get something concrete about the person so if you come up missing the police got an idea of where to start looking.

          Exactly! I’ve been married for a long time, but the game never changes. Before a man gets into a woman’s personal business (her love pocket) she needs to know all his business and if he’s on bullsh*t or not.

    I am glad that she is alive. That is the most important thing. Obviously, Dontarius is a sick criminal and evil acts should be condemned and opposed. At the end of the day, people must respect the dignity of human life.

      And this is why I donot believe in meeting random people online offline. You have no idea who you are really dealing with. This woman also made some very crucial mistakes as well. You dont know anyone so why are you getting in his car or letting him in yours? Why are you taking him back to your home or going to his? SLOW DOWN! Does not mean she deserved it but women have to wake up and stop being so trusting. And vice versa. If you look at his pic, he looks like something is wrong with him. I can only imagine what his convo was actually like. Sheesh

        In this generation with the sick, evil events going on (from the terrible murder of unarmed Brothers and Sisters to the evil Paris attack), discernment is one very key word for people to embrace. We have to be careful and never trust disturbed strangers. This man obviously has issues. His actions are deplorable and unjustifiable. Society is definitely in need of a change. That is why people are taking classes in self defense, exercise, and programs of social awareness, so people can protect themselves. This social awareness is blatantly key as a way for humanity to protect their own human autonomy. There are a lot of sick males (not men. There is a difference) who want to hurt people. As we have mentioned before, trust for anybody is not a requirement nor a necessity. In other words, we should not trust everyone on Earth. Trust is conditional. It is conditional based on actions. Life doesn’t have to be a sprint. It can be a more balanced journey where we don’t have to rush in our decisions. We can take our time to respect sincere, great people, but never respect evil. I hope that justice is done ultimately.

          YOu said:We have to be careful and never trust disturbed strangers.

          I’m going to also add and correct that and say. STRANGERS period. Unless you are face to face , growing together , both parties or parties putting in the effort to grow in decency, you don’t know .And again, NO ONE knows anyone over the INTERNET. if anyone thinks that they do, they are disturbed because its not logical.Their are a lot of sick people period but everyone is not out here to use, hurt, get over, manipulate ,F over people that they do not know or know. The thing is, people have to prove themselves for who and what they are through their past behaviors and current.In order to know that, it can’t be done over the internet. period.

            Trust is earned. Strangers should never be viewed as equivalent to family, friends, or other great people. The Internet is a tool. It can be used for good or for evil. That is why people have to think ahead when using it and never trust strangers. Trustworthy people prove themselves by their actions in public and in private. That is why actions by people done in private outline their true character. That is why it is very important to reject distraction and to witness that precautions and preparations are a necessity in this world. We should keep on living our lives. Living our lives is never about the embrace of naivete. It is about working in our communities constructively, learning information (as learning wisdom is a life long process), and to reject traps. True sincerity is shown by everyday done beyond the Internet as you have mentioned.

              You said,

              You got that right Truthseeker.And the consequences of breaking Trust of those you are suppose to love is a serious one when loved ones walk away from you. The consequence is loss of a person or people who unconditionally love you.It affects you . To blindly give trust to people you do not know, does not have the same consequences to those who are aswipes, messing over others and taking advantage.This is why, EARNING it is CRUCIAL.

              Now, their is nothing wrong with getting to know others to see over time, if they possess the characteristics to be a good friend, a person to talk to, etc but this takes a period of time.and the main indicator is BEHAVIOR.Not what people say. Because, people can justify their behaviors but, the behaviors don’t lie.

                Yes, establishing true relationships will take time. Those who exploit others and are sick need not to be supported in any fashion. It is not right for anyone to give unconditional trust to anybody on Earth.

                Another point is to be made too. Some people view love as unconditional trust or unilateral support of anybody (even evil people) no matter what. That is not what true love is about about. True love is demanding. It demands accountability. It demands discernment and it demands respect. Therefore, there is nothing wrong with basic communication with humanity in a positive, legitimate fashion. We communicate with people all of the time. There is a problem with oppression, injustice, and bigotry. That is why the full expression of love is the standing up for truth and wisdom not the acceptance of the nefarious ideologies of evil people.

                  Yep, I always say “I love you, but I love my self first”. If loving you is in direct conflict with “loving myself”, then I need to question my love for you. Especially if you claim to love the “me” that you are violating.

                I understand however my wife and I enjoyed watching the first episode with Monet and Vaughn and enjoyed it but haven’t seen another episode so I don’t know what’s going on I thought out of all the three couple Monet and Vaughn had the best chance of making it if they wanted to but I was wrong and the problem was they didn’t want to. One key to being married both parties must want to be married. Lastly is this anything different than aristocrats do when they choose a mates for their offspring to produce the further generation for their dynasty? Happy new year brother.

                  Many people love the show. Well, many aristocrats in Europe do things a little different historically. They have done a lot of sick things that I can’t mention here. Well, we know how they have arranged marriages. I respect Monet and Vaughn’s strength and honesty. Both admitted their mistakes and expressed their strengths. Subconsciously and consciously, I wished for them to be married for a longer period of time, but it didn’t work out for many reasons. They were physically attracted to each other, but their relationship romantically ended (because of differences of opinion, disputes, etc.). True romance is not about sexual chemistry alone. True romance is about caring, growing bonds emotionally, and true respect. Both people wanted to move on. I wish the best for both of them. Ultimately, relationships must be established voluntarily among men and women.

                          Money and power can be corrupted, but a voluntary relationship among people (irrespective of their socioeconomic levels) can have greater blessings internally than an arranged marriage. Of course, there is nothing wrong with resources in a marriage, but many arranged marriages are set up by third parties whereas true love is voluntarily established among human beings.

Peace brother good night.

                              I understand your view Brother. Marriage is a serious endeavor. That is why preparations and other legitimate actions are key ways for marriages to exist for a long period of time. We all want more black marriages to exist (as marriage is a stabilizing force in society and stronger families equal into stronger communities. That is a fundamental truth) and fighting economic inequality can do wonders in increasing the vitality of black marriages in general. Money is a tool. It is not a god. In other words, economic resources should be used to enrich society. At the same time, money is not a panacea to solve all of our problems as black people. The legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, etc. has harmed many black families. The ghetto has been exploited by corporate elites as a means for them to limit power, privatize resources, make housing more expensive (so gentrification can happen quicker), and to oppress the poor.

                              Therefore, we have to balance our idealism with realism. So, we have to know that we need power, so men and women can achieve their own destinies while excluding a selfish, materialistic mindset at the same time. We see how materialism and so forth have contributed to our recent 2008 recession. We have to discuss class and socioeconomic issues fully. I have no problems with that. We also need to fight for job opportunities and economic justice in general, so men and women can build in their own lives. Love is a powerful force and love has started movements, ended evils, and enriched lives. Love should not be used as an excuse for people to act lackadaisical in marriage, but it is an opportunity for people to build up interpersonal relationships.

                              Likewise, families in both spouses should find common ground. Yes, a man and woman should be equally yoked in a marriage. Some marriages are successful in many situations, but marriages should be strengthened out of sincere intentions without Machiavellian motivations. Therefore, there is
                              nothing wrong with marriages being built upon economic and social stability, but we need to reject economic materialism and social selfishness. The poor deserve justice. Selflessness is important too.

                        You are right. I heard that before. The thing is, I don’t want to know just about the amazing selling points, that side about a man. I want to know about the annoying things about him so I can decide if I can tolerate those things for life. lol I have a friend who’s husband told her when they first started dating, all about the annoying things he does, what he was about and what he could and could not tolerate. They are still married 6 years later. Yup, thats about right.Its like ,don’t paint me this perfect picture because no one is perfect.

                        True, but it might be more about the acceptance of the married people to commit to the relationship. When two people decide that this is it, they will work out their differences. The key words are “two people decide”. Thats what I find to be true.

                                OK, I recognize that pic now! It always caught my eye and now I know why. Yep, there is a greater symbolism to that person that some of us know, that is beyond the simple stories we hear. Just like the burning bush. I see you brother. Stay strong.

                    you are right brother believe me marriage is not for people who don’t really want to be married or the immature or those with a overly inflated opinion of themselves.

                The black couple slept together SUPER fast. I was surprised by how quick they were to hook up, just because some “experts” on TV put them together.

                  The “experts” are not always right as you have proven. All of the couples slept together fast except for Doug and Jamie. I just can’t participate in an experiment like that.

              You are right. From a general standpoint, their is nothing wrong with standing up for principal and what is right for groups of people etc. This is a general universal truth that does not require people to know one another personally. So these kind of convos on the internet are non threatening in and acceptable. Teaching ,learning, showing others information that will help is right and a good use of the tool called to internet.

              Using, lying, abusing, manipulating, hurting, stalking others by using the internet as a tool to get what you want out of people you donot know, is extremely problematic. People do it all day long and you can see it if you are paying attention.And they will come a thousand different ways to try to gain some kind of trust.Very bold behavior if you ask me.

                Exactly! I like how you stated “use the internet as a tool”.

                Don’t get it twisted. Some “stranger” you meet on the street can treat you the same way. A bad person will be bad regardless, and will use any “tool” available to them. We need to use discretion with anyone we meet or date.

                  You better believe it John. Everyone gets treated the same until you can figure out what their REAL motivations truly are. On the street too. ๐Ÿ™‚

            I see you watch the ID channel, you can never be too cautious. Discernment has to be razor sharp in all circumstances.

              You are right and trust me, it is. And in case you may have missed something, you at least make sure your ducks are in a row. Always let others know what the deal is if need be and if you have peoples in certain places, they can be helpful if it comes to that..Of course we are talking about legalities. Bottom line, leave people alone but be prepared for those who don’t understand that.

    I’d have to say since I first logged on2 the WWW back in 1997, I never
    had a bad experience. I went to all the offline parties that were held
    in Las Vegas (lived in Vegas) met my ex-husband online (we are still
    good friends today and he’s since remarried), met my best friend who
    lives in Charlotte, NC and at the time I had known her for 6 yrs I’d
    never met my BFF. After my mother transitioned, I had become somewhat
    uncomfortable with Las Vegas and wanted to make a move. My “bestie” who
    I’d been friends with for 6 yrs online invited me to come to Charlotte,
    NC and if I like the Queen city, I can stay with her until I got on my
    feet. It was so funny when she and I first met face 2 face. She looked a
    little like my sister whom is deceased and was/is the same age as my
    sister if she were alive. We laughed, hugged each other and joked, as I
    said to her. I could have driven all of 2300 miles to a place that
    didn’t exist and she, my BFF said, yeah, and I could have met someone
    who was a female serial killer ………LOL. I stayed with her for a
    little over a month, got my own place and been here, living in the SE
    since 2007. So, needless to say from 1997-2007 I’ve had nothing but
    great online experiences, nothing like what some women have experienced
    which some experienced beatings, rapes, and murdered. I remember when I
    first started hearing abt “online meetups” where women were being
    murdered and raped and it was against white women. I guess now, it has
    spilled over n2 the black community…Such a shame

    I stopped talking to a dude I met out running errands because he wouldn’t tell me his last name. I can’t date anyone before I’ve done my due diligence on them. When I dated online, I sent a photo of their licenses to a friend…as insurance. He would have had to kill me long before we arrived at the Waffle House.
