Louisville woman arrested after police say dating app meeting led to carjacking | New

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Police say a Louisville woman met a man on a dating app before she and two others hijacked the victim and fled.

According to court documents, McKenzie Ezell, 20, and the victim met on an online dating app before meeting in person in Cincinnati. On Saturday, the victim agreed to drive Ezell home from Louisville.

But the victim said he arrived around 5 p.m. in an alley in the 600 block of South 40th Street near River Park Drive in the Shawnee neighborhood. That’s when Ezell allegedly pulled out a handgun and demanded he flip the car.

Two other men, both armed, got into the car at the same time, according to the victim. The suspects then drove the victim to the intersection of Duncan Street and North Shawnee Terrace before leading him out. It was then that the victim called the police.

Just before 9 p.m., police said they saw Ezell driving the stolen vehicle, wearing the same clothes the victim described her in the theft.

She was arrested and reportedly confessed to the crime. She is charged with first degree theft.

There is no word on the identities or statuses of the other two suspects.
