A woman was ambushed by thugs from a dating app who beat and robbed her in a horror catfish trap.

The 44-year-old was expecting to meet a man she had met on Plenty of Fish but was instead punched in the face and stomach by three yobs.

She went to meet her date in the foyer of her apartment building in Tipton, West Midlands at around 1.30am on Tuesday, December 8 but not long after two others stormed in, forcing their way inside.

After unleashing a horrendous beating to the woman's face and body, all three men ran off with two iPhones and a set of keys.

Birmingham Live reports the victim was not badly injured but West Midlands Police said there had been a "psychological impact" following the attack.
