Two Madison men arranged a business deal over social media Tuesday evening; however the proposed transaction did not go as planned as they were robbed, with one being pistol whipped.

The crime took place inside an apartment building in the 1100 block of Moorland Rd. The victims said they had some used phones they were going to sell, but the "buyer" showed up with a handgun, and brought three others with him: one also had a pistol, another had a shotgun, and the third served as a lookout.

Instead of purchasing phones, the robbers took one victim's money and sneakers.

A police dog tracked to an area where officers believe robbers likely got into a getaway car.
