ELIZABETHTOWN (AP) — A man who thought he was buying a television from a seller who advertised online was instead ambushed and beaten with a baseball bat around 6 p.m. Tuesday in Elizabethtown, Lancaster County.

Police said the 44-year-old man responded to an ad on Craigslist selling a television and met a young woman in a movie theater parking lot.

After asking if he had the cash for the TV, the woman began walking the victim toward a parked car when a man ambushed him and struck him in the head with the bat.

The victim was struck two more times before getting to his feet and escaping.
