LOS ANGELES —

A California man who is accused of setting up blind dates with women, meeting them for dinner and leaving the restaurant before the bill hits the table has allegedly struck again, KCBS reported

Paul Gonzales is accused of dining and dashing multiple times in the Los Angeles area, KCBS reported.

This time, the woman, who did not want to be identified, said she met Gonzales, who used the alias Dave Gonzales, on the dating app Bumble. They met at a Pasadena restaurant Sunday night. 

The woman said he ordered a glass of wine, a salad, a steak and a baked potato, eating it quickly.

At one point he received a phone call, telling his date he had to take it. But he never returned, sticking her with the tab. 

The waiter realized what happened and dropped the bad news that the woman’s date was gone. 

The restaurant didn’t hold the woman responsible for his meal, comping her for everything but his glass of wine.

She later found out she isn’t the first alleged victim of Gonzales’ dine and dash dates.


At least two other women were victims, and US Weekly featured the story of the alleged victims last year.

But dining and dashing isn’t Gonzales only way of getting out of paying police said.

He also has walked out after getting a cut and color at a Burbank hair salon last year, KCBS reported

Gonzales was seen leaving the salon on security video.

He also has two bench warrants out for his arrest for failing to show up in court for petty theft and driving without a valid license. He’s also been in jail several times on misdemeanors, KCBS reported
