Talk about a bad date.

A woman went out the dinner at a local fast-food restaurant with a man to celebrate her 26th birthday and went back to a North Amityville home, where the birthday girl texted five of her friends to rob her suitor, Suffolk County police said.

The couple was sitting in the driveway of a house on Nathalie Avenue when the five robbers came outside, assaulted the man and stole his wallet, iPhone, a tablet and the chocolates he gave the woman at 10:30 p.m. Monday, police said.

The victim called police, who arrested his date, Virginia Miller of North Amiyville, and three of the five men, including 21-year-old Jamar Christian of North Amityville, 34-year-old Michael Owens of Hempstead and 33-year-old Rodney Fisher of Amityville.

All four were charged with robbery and are scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Central Islip.

Police are continuing to search for the other two men.
