BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police say a couple was robbed of $4,000 when they answered a Craigslist ad to buy a vehicle. One of the victims pulled a gun and fired several shots into the air, but no one was hit.
Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the couple met with two suspects about 8 p.m. Monday in the Bolton Hill neighborhood. The suspects announced a robbery, a struggle ensued and the suspects got the cash.
Guglielmi says one of the victims, Keyna Oduyoye, pulled out a handgun and fired it into the air, causing the suspects to flee the scene. He said Oduyoye chased the suspects, firing more shots into the air.
Oduyoye was charged with a handgun violation.
Guglielmi says a similar robbery occurred in Bolton Hill on Saturday.
