Men Attacked After Meeting Car Seller on Craigslist

Two men from New York City drove to the Elm City to get a closer look at a car that was listed for sale on Craigslist and met a man named “Mike” in the 100 block of Dover Street, New Haven police said. While showing off the car, Mike suddenly started revving the engine and two men attacked them from behind, held them at gunpoint and took the $4,600 in cash the victims had to buy the car, as well as thousands in jewelry and a cell phone, police said.
