2 robbed trying to buy Craigslist item

Armed themselves but looking for a deal on an iPhone 5 seen on Craigslist, two men were robbed late Friday night on Fort Wayne’s southeast side.

According to a police report, the would-be buyer and his roommate went to Villa Capri Apartments about 11:30 p.m. to purchase the phone.

After the seller came downstairs, the four men were talking when one of the would-be sellers pulled a handgun, robbing the buyers of their cash. The two would-be buyers gave up their money, and after the robbers patted them down, handed over another gun – a .40-caliber Taurus, according to the police report.

The robbers were apparently still at large Monday.
