Man robbed during Craigslist meetup

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A man was robbed after responding to a Craigslist ad about buying an iPad Saturday night.

Huntsville Police were called to the 3000 block of Autumn Wood Dr. around 10:30 p.m. The victim reported that he went there to meet someone he found on Craigslist to buy an iPad he had seen listed for sale on the website.

The man went on to say he was approached by two black males, one of whom pulled out a gun and demanded money. The two men then fled with an unknown amount of cash.

No injuries were reported, and the investigation is ongoing.

Officials remind people wanting to buy or sell anything on Craigslist to be particularly careful when arranging purchases for high-ticket items such as iPads.
