Police say the victim told them he met three people at about 9:30 p.m., and two of them interested in purchasing his watch but could not agree on a price.

The victim then said one of the three reached back out to say he wanted to make the purchase but wanted to see the watch again, police said.

At that meeting, police say one of the suspects in a white SUV pulled a handgun out at the victim and took the watch and a small amount of cash before fleeing.
