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.
