2 at large after armed robbery in Lauderhill Craigslist scam

LAUDERHILL, FLA. (WSVN) - Lauderhill police are searching for two subjects who lured their victim to a hold up via Craigslist.

According to Lauderhill police, the armed robbery took place in the parking lot of a Bank of America, near Northwest 44th Street and Inverrary Boulevard, just after 11 a.m., Wednesday.

A second suspect driving a getaway car helped the armed robber escape.
