WILLISTON PARK - Police say a Bronx man swindled hundreds of dollars from a Williston Park woman in a concert ticket scam.

Theo Cooke is accused of selling four fake concert tickets through Craigslist to the woman last month for $900.

The victim called police after she checked with Ticketmaster and realized the tickets were fake.

Police say they set up a sting, sending one of the woman's friends to buy more tickets from Cooke. He was arrested Monday.
