An 84-year-old New Yorker thought he was going on a "date" with two 17-year-old twin sisters.
The New York Times reports that Paul Aronson met up with 17-year-old Shaina Foster last month through SeekingArrangement.com, a site “where beautiful, successful people fuel mutually beneficial relationships”. In other words, a "seeking sugar daddy" site.
After a first date, Shaina brought her twin sister Shalaine along for a meal at an "expensive restaurant" and then Aronson invited them back to his apartment for a drink, court documents said.
“He asked to do things I wasn’t going to do,” Shania told a detective. “He is ugly, old and disgusting. I tied him up. I took his money and left. He was starting to creep me out.”
The New York Daily News reports that the sisters tied the old man up with zip ties, stole $420 worth of cash and credit cards and then went shopping. The pair are now being charged with kidnapping, burglary, robbery, assault and grand larceny. They are being held without bail.
The age of consent in New York is 17, which may explain why Aronson isn't facing any charges.
