Two 21-year-old Wichita men are the latest victims in a Craigslist robbery, police said this morning.

The two men met a third man in the 2300 block of North Woodlawn around 10:30 p.m. Friday night, police Sgt. Scott Brunow said, to sell him a PlayStation 4.

The man pulled a handgun on the two men and took the video game console and the sellers’ cellphones, Brunow said.
