WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A stranger’s offer to sell a big-screen TV turned out to be much too good to be true for a Wichita family.
KWCH-TV reports a man approached another man in a parking lot Saturday afternoon and showed him a 50-inch TV set. The prospective buyer called his wife, who invited the supposed seller to their home.
But instead of selling her the TV, the man robbed her at gunpoint. He left the big TV behind, but it turned out not to work.
The initial encounter took place outside a convenience store in south Wichita. No arrest was reported as of Monday.
