 A Madison husband and wife were the victims of a strong-armed robbery this afternoon after they arranged to buy two iPhones after communicating with "sellers" on Facebook Messenger. They agreed to conduct the transactions in the 6600 block of Berkshire Rd. The couple arrived, and two men wearing hoodies over their heads showed up. The "sellers" ended up grabbing the buyers' money and fled with both cash and phones. There were no weapons implied or seen.
