Man Charged as Dating Website Rapist, Robber

A man accused of raping and robbing women he met through a social dating website has been arrested in Richland County.

Sheriff Leon Lott says 28-year-old Denzil Jones allegedly solicited women on the “Tagged” dating website.

Lott says in three separate instances, Jones met women in the area of Joe Frazier Court and Smith Street, which is near the intersection of I-77 and Shop Road.

He's then accused of sexually assaulting them at gunpoint.

The sheriff says Jones also stole an iPhone from one victim.

He has been charged with three counts of criminal sexual conduct, plus armed robbery.

Lott is urging any other women who may have been assaulted by Jones to contact the sheriff's department at (803) 576-3102.
