A Wichita man hoping to meet someone answering a Craigslist sales ad became a robbery victim. Police were called to the 600 block of West 27th Street Sunday night.
The victim told officers he placed an ad on Craigslist, trying to sell a flat screen TV and video game console. The man and a potential buyer agreed to meet in a public parking lot.
When the victim arrived he was approached by three men driving a Nissan Altima. One of the men pulled out a handgun and demanded the victim's cash. The victim was then robbed of the television and video game console. The suspects then slashed the victim's car tires.
The suspects were described as black men, all wearing black gloves and dark hoodies. The car had a tag number of A064920 from an unknown state.
