Couple robbed in NLR while responding to Craigslist ad

Posted By on Fri, Feb 22, 2013 at 2:20 PM

A couple told N. Little Rock Police they were robbed at gunpoint last night after driving from Oklahoma hoping to buy a car they saw advertised on Craigslist.

The couple said they'd been directed to go to an address on Graham Ave., where they were to meet the seller of a used Mercedes, who told them he was running late. While they were waiting for the seller to arrive, they were approached by two men in hooded sweatshirts, at least one of whom brandished a handgun. The men demanded their valuables, then ran away.

This isn't the first Craigslist robbery in recent memory. Last October, a Little Rock man was charged with theft of property after police say he did multiple snatch-and-run robberies from Craigslist sellers who met up with him while trying to sell small electronics.
