Columbia police are looking for the suspect in a robbery in the north-central part of the city early Monday.
According to officers, the victim was on his way to buy an item from a Craigslist ad around midnight. As he walked up to the house on Hinkson Avenue, he says a man came up, indicated he had a weapon, and demanded money. After getting the cash, the suspect ran off.
The victim wasn’t hurt. The suspect is a white make in his late 20’s, around five foot ten with brown hair and a large build.
