An Oklahoma City man was robbed at gunpoint when he was trying to purchase a vehicle he saw on a Craigslist ad.

According to Oklahoma City police, the victim responded to a Craigslist ad about purchasing a vehicle for $2,500. He said he met with a woman Sunday night at N.W. 36th and N. Drexel, inspected the car and agreed that it was in good condition.

The woman then demanded money from the man as they were sitting in the car, according to police. Authorities said the man told the woman that he wanted to see the title first.

That's when the woman pulled out a gun, police said.

The victim gave the woman $2,500 in cash. He was able to escape and call 911.

The suspect, who is still at large, is described as a black woman who stands about 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds. She was about 30 years old and was wearing a long sleeve shirt and green pants.

The victim said he did bring a friend with him. But the friend was in another vehicle when the robbery took place.
