Another online meet up turned into a robbery in Akron, according to police.

Akron officers say the victim arranged to meet with the suspect at Walgreen's to sell his old iPhone. The meeting on June 11 was arranged on the Let Go app or website.

The victim told police the suspect punched him in the face and ran after the victim handed over the phone for the suspect to look at before buying.

In recent days, at least three people were robbed after setting up sales through Craigslist. Police have not said if there's any connection to the June robbery.
