OAK CREEK, WI (WTAQ) - Oak Creek Police say an internet post led to vandalism and theft.

According to police, a black male, possibly 19-years-old, responded to the victim’s Craigslist post about an Xbox gaming system for sale on January 7.

The suspect put a $20 down payment towards the system, but came back and wanted to take the system with him. When the victim disagreed, police say the suspect grabbed the Xbox and fled.

Shortly after the incident, the victim heard a window break and the suspect allegedly yelling, “it’s gonna be a cold night”.

Police say the victim provided numbers to them and are looking for the suspect.

Total value of the theft and damage to the window is estimated at $550.
