Again with Craigslist? A woman in Sherman Oaks--living just across the street from the Galleria--was robbed last night when two men responded to her masseuse ad on Craigslist. A gun was pointed at her head, she was tied up and robbed before they left. She was able to free herself and call the police around 8:30 p.m. Earlier this month, police were looking for a few people who would place car ads on the website for extremely low prices. When the buyer would come with cash, as requested, they would be robbed. Two of the suspects have been arrested.
