Sacramento police say at least 10 men have been robbed in recent weeks after arranging to meet women through online social networking sites.

In each case the victim arrived only to be confronted by men, usually armed.

A Sacramento Police spokesman declined to specify which websites were used, but says they are dating sites or sites where items are sold.

The department suggests people meet in public places during the day.
