ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Facebook ad led to a robbery for one couple who wanted to sell an iPhone, and police are warning residents to be on guard.
Kayla Daniels and Dontonio Edwards told police they arranged to meet a man who answered their ad on Facebook about an iPhone they wanted to sell.
They met at a vacant lot on the corner of South Slappey Boulevard and Cedar Avenue about 8:20 Tuesday night.
Daniels said four other men jumped them and hit them both in the head with a gun. Then they stole their laptops and cash.
Police warn that arranged sales should take place in a well-lit and visible area to reduce risk of theft or injury.
