Meet Me in the Deserted Alley...
This is part of a trend we've seen over the past year or three - why trust to blind luck when you can have the victims just bring you their stuff?
- Bail was set at $350,000 today for a 20-year-old man charged in several robberies where victims were attacked when they responded to ads posted on Craigslist, authorities said.
Andrew Jones, of the 8100 block of South Merrill Avenue, was charged with aggravated assault and armed robbery in connection with several robberies connected to an advertisement on Craigslist, police said.
Police had issued an alert earlier this week warning of people who were robbed when responding to an ad on the site. The victims met a man at a certain location where they were met by an armed robber who forced them to the rear of the location and robbed them, police said.
It's almost like shopping at home. And you know what they're bringing you in advance. One victim from Wheeling got gut-shot for his troubles. Why on earth would you bring anything into the city, let alone some of the neighborhoods this guy was prowling in?
