Chicago man charged in Craigslist robberies
Chicago police have arrested a 20-year-old man they say robbed several people who were responding to ads posted on Craigslist.
In a news release, police said Andrew Jones of Chicago was arrested Friday and charged with aggravated battery and armed robbery.
They said people responding to the ads would arrange to meet Jones at a specified location.
When they arrived Jones would display a handgun and escort them to the back of the location. Police said he then took their property, car keys and vehicles.
In one incident, a victim was shot.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported that the robberies involved people answering men-seeking-men ads and that they occurred on Nov. 5 and 12.
