The Metropolitan Police has revealed a 2000% rise in the number of crimes involving Tinder and Grindr since 2012.
These shocking results show that in the first six months of this year, 187 reported crimes are said to have involve the two dating apps.
And if figures continue to rise as predicted, the overall number of offences alleged to involve these apps could exceed a whopping 350 cases this year.
The 2016 figures are therefore likely to trump last year’s reported 317 crimes.
To put this in some perspective, in 2012 just 18 reported crimes involved Tinder and Grindr, with seven thefts, four allegations of violence, four sexual offences and three robberies.
And by 2015, these figures rose dramatically, with 180 allegations of violence, 74 sex attacks, 26 thefts, seven robberies, seven allegations of criminal damage, six burglaries and 17 ‘other offences’.
