NEW ORLEANS -- A man attempting to buy a car through Craigslist ended up being the victim of an armed robbery in Algiers Monday.
The man contacted a man named "Angelo" through Craigslist to buy a Volkswagen Passat for $3,500, and agreed to meet Angelo in the 2900 block of Hudson Place to test drive the vehicle, police said.
As he was test driving the vehicle, Angelo pulled a gun on the prospective buyer and said, "You know what time it is," according to a police report. The man relented and gave Angelo the $3,500 in cash.
Police describe Angelo as a black male, medium build, short black hair and clean shaven.
Anyone with information is asked to the NOPD 4th District at 504-658-6045.
