Three suspects are still on the loose a week after police say they robbed a man on August 6th. County police say the incident happened on the first block of Miles Road in Radnor Green in Claymont.

The victim thought he was meeting someone to buy an Off Highway Vehicle that was policed online. However, when the victim got to the meeting place last Wednesday, he says three men came at him pointing guns. They stole his cell phone and cash, and then took off.

Police say all three suspects are black and in their mid 20's. Two of the suspects were taller than 6 feet, but the other suspect is closer to 5'6".

Police say it's important to meet people you're doing business with through an online sale in public areas, such as gas stations, restaurants or mall parking lots.
