Leah Gibbs, 23, agreed to go on a date with Adam Minton after meeting him on Facebook. Instead of a night of romance however, she got a night in a jail cell.
According to The Sun, Minton asked Gibbs to drive him to a casino and wait for him in the car.
Minutes later he allegedly ran out of the store, got into the car with a bag of money, and told Gibbs to "drive, drive, drive!"
Once they arrived at his house, he tried to force Gibbs to go inside with him, only to find the police hot on their trail.
As the Herald Sun reported, Gibbs spent the night in a jail cell and was free only after Minton admitted that he had worked alone.
The publication also reported that Minton claimed thousands of pounds of debt because of a cocaine addiction, and was sentenced to four and a half years in jail.
Gibbs told The Sun that she still holds a grudge.
"It was a date from hell. I'm grateful he told the police I knew nothing of the robbery, but still bitter he involved me."
