Detectives Need Help Finding Man Who Met Victims For Sex, Robbed Them Instead (UPDATED)

UPDATE: Detectives have arrested Hansen.

A robber, who targeted his victims through online personal ads, eluded police in the Central District last night, but detectives are hoping the public can help track him down.

Police believe David Hansen, 25, brutally beat and robbed a man in November after meeting him for sex.

In another case earlier this month, Hansen showed up to a Capitol Hill home for sex. Once inside the home, Hansen pulled out a gun and stole phones, laptops, and wallets from two victims.

Detectives are working to arrest Hansen for the two robberies, and are hoping anyone else targeted by him will contact police.

If you’ve been victimized by Hansen or know where police can find him, please call 911 or contact the Robbery Unit at (206) 684-5535.
