    The victim told police he was on a first date with a woman named “Sophie,” who police later identified as Katherine Stonick.

    After the victim paid for the meal, Stonick excused herself from the table to use the restroom and asked the manager to charge $300 to the victim’s credit card for a gift card, according to police, but the victim had no idea. 

    Stonick then went back to the restaurant on Aug. 18 and Aug. 19 and used the gift card, police said.
