PATERSON, NJ - A Morris County man, 44,  was robbed on Sunday when he visited a location in the city answering a Craiglist ad for a massage.

According to Lt. Bert Ribeiro, the robbery occurred at 6 Katz Ave. Police believe there may have been other victims of crimes similar to this one who have not come forward.

"The victim was led to that address by a Craiglist advertisement regarding massages," Ribeiro said. "Once at the location, the victim was robbed by the two suspects of his cash and credit cards. Detectives feel there are more victims of these suspects who might be hesitant to report these crimes due to the nature of the initial intentions of the encounter at the location."

Police have arrested Mark Perrone, 24, and Dana Arevalo, 36, charging both with robbery and criminal restraint and also charging Perrone with weapons possession.
