Two teenage brothers and their mother were attempting to sell a PlayStation Portable on Craigslist on Saturday when they were robbed at gunpoint, police said today.
The robbery happened at 12:55 p.m. Saturday, according to Sgt. Steve Yarberry, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department.
The family had placed an ad for the PSP on Craigslist. A man saw the ad, called the family and arranged to meet them at 12:55 at the Taco Bueno parking lot in the 400 block of North Hillside.
When the family showed up, a man approached them, waved a gun and ordered them to give him the PSP and their cell phones.
"He dropped the magazine out of the gun and told them he wasn't playing around," Yarberry said.
The robber then placed the items in a black duffel bag he was carrying, grabbed the mother's purse and ran off.
No one was injured in the incident and police were searching today for the robber.
