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.

Maybe meet at the police station if you're buying or selling an iPhone on CL.

Craig's list seems to be a dangerous method of buying anything. This isn't the first time.

I'm just amazed at how people continue to be robbed through Craigslist as much as it has been in the news about buyers/sellers being robbed.
