Craigslist Scammers Rob Man at Gunpoint

Two Bronx men stuck up a 25-year-old and stole his cash and cellphone after posting a fake Craigslist ad for an iPhone, police said.

The victim went to a house on Barnes Avenue near East Gun Hill Road in Williamsbridge at about 4 p.m. to buy a cellphone that was advertised online, cops said.

When he got to the address the two thieves forced him against a wall and trained a gun to the back of his head, police said.

They then grabbed his cellphone, wallet and credit cards, police said.

The suspects then used the stolen cards to buy video games at a nearby Game Stop and fast-food at a local Burger King, police said.
