Phoenix man assaulted, robbed at meeting set via Craigslist – The Arizona Republic

Phoenix police are seeking the public’s help to locate two men they believe assaulted and robbed a man at a Phoenix McDonald’s after he arranged to meet them via Craigslist.
The man was set to meet the pair at the restaurant, near 25th Street and Bell Road, because they had agreed to buy his laptop listed on Craigslist, police said.
They arrived on July 2 at about 6 p.m., and the two men immediately yelled that the man had stolen his own laptop, according to law enforcement. They then grabbed the laptop and the man’s phone.
When he tried to stop them, the pair pushed the man to the ground and punched him in the face multiple times before driving away.
