CLARK COUNTY, WA (KPTV) -

Two people were robbed Saturday after they responded to an OfferUp ad of a cellphone for sale. 

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office says the victims met the suspect at a Hazel Dell sports complex. When the victims arrived, the suspect displayed a black semi-auto handgun and demanded money from them.  

One of the victims was able to take a photo of the suspect during the encounter, which the sheriff’s office shared in a news release. 

The suspect was described as a black man, approximately 5’7” and weighing about 160 pounds. He appeared to be between 20 and 30 years of age. 

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect or his whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Kennison at (360)989-7803.
