DOVER, Del. (AP) - Dover police say a man robbed two people at gunpoint after he arranged to meet them to sell them a phone.

The robbery occurred Monday evening in front of an apartment building. Police say in a news release that 24-year-old William Loper pointed a gun at two people who had arranged to meet him and demanded their property. Police say the victims gave cash, watches and a cell phone to Loper, who then ran away.

Loper is wanted on charges including first-degree robbery and possession of a deadly weapon during a felony.

Police note that people who want to meet up to complete online transactions in a safe place are welcome to do so outside the city police headquarters.
