WEST HARTFORD – Police are investigating after a man was robbed late Monday night.

Police say they were called to Westphal Street around 11:30 p.m. after a man stated he’d just been robbed. The victim said he was trying to sell an iPhone to a man he met on Craigslist, Martel Davis.

The victim says when he met with Davis, he took a picture of him to record the transaction. But, when it was time to pay for the phone, Davis shot a BB gun in the victim’s direction and ran away. Police say they found Davis and the BB gun later at his home.

Davis is facing several charges.
