A 33-year-old man was hit on the head with a rock and robbed after he met a man to buy an iPhone that had been advertised on the online classifieds website Craigslist, police said.
The victim told investigators he arranged to meet with the purported iPhone 5 seller about 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the Candlewood Suites at 10520 W. Markham St.
Shortly after meeting the seller at the front entryway, a second man grabbed the victim from behind and the seller hit the victim on the head with a rock, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.
The two assailants then took the man's wallet, which included $700 in cash he'd taken to the purported phone sale, and ran off, authorities said.
The victim was taken to Baptist Health Medical Center for treatment of a "significant laceration to the top of his head that bled profusely" but wasn't considered life-threatening, the report said.
The robbers are described as black men 22 to 25 years old who stood 5-foot-7 and wore black coats and gray or blue pants.
