BUSHWICK, Brooklyn — Four men pulled a gun on a 23-year-old man in an elevator and stole his wallet and phones before they ran away, police said.
The victim met two of the suspects at 9:15 p.m. on June 4 after arranging to sell an iPhone to one of them over Craigslist, police said. The suspect who had arranged to buy the phone said the money for the phone was in his apartment.
While they were in the building's elevator, two more men got in, police said. The first man pulled out a gun while the other three took the victim's wallet, which had $350, and two iPhones. All of the men fled down the building's stairwells.
