The victim met two young men—described as one black male and one Hispanic male, 16 to 17 years old—on the 300 block of Tolerance Court around 4 p.m. Jan. 17, police said. The victim was responding to a Craigslist ad for an iPhone 5c.

Police said the victim handed over $220 cash, at which point the suspects fled on foot toward Equality Court without completing the transaction.
