(KMOV) – Police are searching for a suspect who beat and robbed a man responding to a Craigslist ad at a Collinsville apartment Tuesday night.
According to police, the victim was meeting with another man to purchase a television at an apartment in the 50 block of Brookhill Ct. when he was hit in the head with a wooden baseball bat.
The suspect demanded the victim's money and fled with an undetermined amount of cash. Police were investigating whether there was more than one suspect involved.
According to police, the victim suffered a head injury but refused to be transported to the hospital.
Police say the attack came two days after a similar incident occurred at the same residence. In that case, the victim was also meeting to purchase a television.
