CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Four teenagers have been arrested after they told Cincinnati police they intended to rob a person they arranged a meeting with on Craigslist.

Nicholas Broomfield-Carter, 19, and three other juveniles are all charged with robbery.

According to the police report, the suspects answered the victim's Craigslist ad for selling a Playstation 3. They arranged to meet the seller at an abandoned home.

Prior to the victim's arrival, police stopped at the home while they were waiting for the victim to show up. Police identified them, then sent them on their way. A few moments later, the victim showed up and told police about his intent to sell his Playstation.

The suspects later admitted during an interview that they intended to rob the victim, but police showed up before they could.
