Several teenagers robbed a man after taking his cellphone and then agreeing to sell it back to him Thursday night on Madison’s south side, according to a release.
The man was sitting on a bus around 5 p.m. when a group of teens gathered near the exit door, Madison police said. One of the teens grabbed the man’s cellphone and several of the teens got off the bus near Rimrock Road and Kent Lane.
The man followed the teens off the bus, and was approached by three other teens who exited the bus after him, according to the release. The man was told he would be able to buy his cellphone back from the group, but they eventually stole his money too.
No one was injured in the robbery, and the teens have not been located, officials said.
Police did not provide a description of the teens.
