A man who thought he was buying a car literally got ripped off by the so-called seller, police said.
The 34-year-old victim intended to buy a car from a man who appeared to be in his 40s, police said. The suspect was reportedly driving the victim to the car about 9 p.m. Tuesday when the suspect pulled over in the area of 25th and Harrison streets.
The suspect then pulled out a knife and demanded the victim’s cash, police said.
The victim handed over his backpack, which had the cash for the car in it, and the suspect fled the scene.
