A 31-year-old man is behind bars, accused of robbing a Hubbard, Ohio victim who was responding to his Craigslist ad.

This happened around 11:30am on Friday, Jan. 17.

The victim reported he responded to a Craigslist ad to buy some gold jewelry.  The victim called the "supposed seller" and was going to meet him in a parking lot in the 400 block of East South Street.
