Man robbed by two men he met through online ad

A 22-year-old man was robbed at gunpoint Friday by two men who met him through an online ad to purchase shoes, police said.

The victim met with two men, who appeared to be in their 20s or 30s, in the Richmond district at 4 p.m. to make the sale. But instead of paying cash, one suspect pulled out a pistol and took the shoes.

Both suspects fled and were not arrested.
