Man wanted for savagely beating woman he met on dating app: report

November 17, 2020 

A nightmare date is wanted for savagely beating a woman he met on an app — telling her the outing “cost too much,” according to a report.

Benjamin Fancher arranged to meet Brittany Correri on Wednesday night after matching with her on the dating app, Hinge, 11Alive reported.

Correri said the first date with “Ben” started off smoothly, with him even meeting her family and friends.

But the night took a turn for the worse after they left Hide Lounge in Buckhead and were together in the car.

“He started beating me in my head, punching me everywhere — my forehead, my temples, my cheeks, jaws, throat, arms, my back. He was just telling me that the date cost too much that I’m not worth that,” Correri said.

At one point, the situation escalated to him pulling out a gun, she said.

“I just believe that he was dead set on killing me,” Correri told the news station.

Correi said that’s when Fancher stopped his white BMW and pulled her out by the hair.

“He’s dragging me and beating me and there just happens to be a security guard there. She comes running and taking pictures and I think he gets spooked,” she said, adding that he drove away from the scene.

He’s now wanted by police on charges of aggravated assault, kidnapping and false imprisonment.

Hinge said it’s “outraged” by the alleged attack and has been cooperating with law enforcement.

“The violence she describes is horrible and is something no one should ever have to experience,” the company said.

“Our moderators reviewed this report and immediately removed and banned the individual from our community.”
