TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Two Hillsborough County men are under arrest for coordinating an armed robbery through Craigslist.

Deputies say Efrain Hewitt and Hector Anavitate stole a Samsung Galaxy phone from a man who coordinated a deal through the popular website.

The man agreed to sell the phone for $300. However, deputies say one of the suspects robbed the man at gunpoint when they met up at 750 West Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Seffner.

The victim's wife and 12-year-old daughter were at the scene.

The sheriff's office said one of the suspects asked to see the phone, pulled out a gun, and then hopped into a nearby awaiting vehicle.

Both Hewitt and Anavitate are charged with armed robbery with a firearm.
