SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- A man was robbed after meeting up with a woman early Wednesday morning in Scottsdale, police say. The break-in happened at a home near Pima and Westland roads.

Officers at the scene tell Arizona’s Family that a man met up with a woman for dinner or drinks earlier that night before agreeing to return to the man’s home. At around 2 a.m., police say three men forced their way in and stole his money and credit cards. The trio then drove the victim in his car to a nearby ATM, forcing him to withdraw money. The man was then dropped off in a Walmart parking lot near the Loop 101 and Frank Lloyd Wright, and they took off in his car. Investigators said that the woman left in her car, and it appears she was part of the scheme.

Police said while the suspects are still on the run, they specifically targeted the victim and that there is no ongoing threat to the community. Police said the man was hit over the head but is expected to be OK. No names have been released, and police haven’t said what type of car was stolen. An investigation is ongoing.
