Craigslist armed robbery in Anne Arundel

SEVERN, Md. - A prospective buyer on Craigslist was robbed at gunpoint Sunday afternoon.

The 24-year old victim went to an address on the 1800 block of Oriole Court in Severn, Md. in response to an advertisement on Craigslist for a dirt bike.  When the victim got to the address, he saw four people standing in front of the house. 

Two of the individuals stepped forward before he got to the front door, and one of the suspects pointed a two-tone, black and silver handgun at the victim while the second person demanded everything he had.  By this time, both of the suspects had on ski masks.  The other two suspects were acting as lookout for the robbery.

After the victim had the gun pointed at him, he turned over his money, phone and other belongings before running back to his car.  At this point, all the suspects fled on foot.

An investigation revealed that the address listed on Craigslist was that of a vacant dwelling.

There were no injuries; however, police were unable to locate the following suspects:

Suspect #1: Black male, late teens, tall and skinny.  Black ski mask armed with a black and silver handgun.
