GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Police are searching for three suspects after a woman was robbed of a phone and then dragged by a car Tuesday afternoon in Greensboro.

Officers responded to 2105 Pinecroft Road at the Bank of America in reference to a robbery.

The victim agreed to meet an unknown subject who she met on Craigslist to sell an iPhone. She met with three black males, who arrived in a green Camry or Accord.

The victim approached the passenger side of the vehicle and after a brief conversation the passenger attempted to grab the cell phone out of her hands.

The woman refused to let go of the phone and driver sped off, dragging the victim approximately 20 feet before she finally let go of the phone.

The victim sustained several abrasions and was treated and released by EMS. The victim was unable to give any further information in reference to the description of the suspects.

Police suggest sales such as ones made through Craigslist should be conducted at a police station.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 336-373-1000.
