Police: Man robbed during Craigslist purchase

Police are searching for the person who robbed a person who was buying something on Craigslist at gunpoint. 



According to officials, a man who found a car on Craigslist agreed to meet the person who he believed was the owner at a home on Carlyle Place in Roslyn Heights.

 

Police say when he got there Saturday, he realized there was no car and two men stole his wallet and cellphone.



So far, no one has been arrested in the incident.



Last month, an Elmont man was accused of robbing a man at gunpoint after agreeing to sell him iPhones on Craigslist.
