A man has been arrested in the US after telling a stranger on a dating app he had stormed the Capitol on January 6.
The man matched with a woman on Bumble and, in the app chat, told her he had been part of the group of people who stormed the Capitol.
The man was no match for the woman, who proceeded to turn him in to the authorities.
Robert Chapman, from New York, was arrested this week under suspicions of involvement in the deadly riot, after his match on Bumble alerted the FBI.

The woman provided screenshots of their conversation on January 13, during which Chapman allegedly said: "I did storm the Capitol and made it all the way to Statuary Hall."
He also bagged about the interviews he gave to the media during the riots.
The woman proceeded to tell him they were "not a match".
According to the FBI, a man who appears to be Chapman was seen inside Statuary Hall in body-camera video from the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington DC.
Chapman also allegedly bragged about his role in the riots on Facebook, posting: "I'm f***ing inside the Crapitol", as well as a photo of himself inside the building.
Chapman has been charged with trespassing on restricted grounds and disrupting official government business.
He's also been banned from Bumble.
