OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Oakland police are issuing a warning to city residents after two more people were robbed over the weekend after responding to cars advertised for sale on Craigslist.

Police say one person was robbed Friday night at gunpoint, while another person was robbed Saturday. Police did not say how much money was taken from the victims, or release any additional details.

The latest robberies come after a series of robberies in Oakland last month of people responding to Craigslist ads.

Last week a married couple was robbed of several thousand dollars when they were held up during what they thought was a test drive of a Mercedes-Benz.

Oakland police also issued a warning earlier in August after several people were robbed after agreeing to meet a person advertising a car or an electronic item for sale on Craigslist.
