The unidentified victim offered two PS3s for sale for $5,000 on Craig's List, and agreed to meet his buyers at 1AM, early Monday morning, at a local McDonald's parking lot. The "customers" showed up, but instead of completing the transaction, the scalper was attacked with pepper spray, mugged and robbed of his two PS3s, after which has assailants took off on foot.
