San Francisco man responding to Craigslist ad for an iPhone is robbed 

A San Francisco man responding to a Craigslist ad for an iPhone was robbed by the person claiming to be selling the smartphone.

The San Francisco man told officers he had arranged to meet the man purporting to be selling the iPhone at an apartment complex in Concord and went to the area with two friends, Concord police Cpl. James Carroll said.

Instead of selling him the phone, the suspect robbed the victim at gunpoint of about $440 and then fled through the apartment complex.

The robber was described as a black man in his 20s about 6 feet tall with a thin build. He had a mole under one eye and was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, Carroll said.

Officers searched the area, but didn't find the suspect.

The victim's friends were not robbed.
