It was a Craigslist nightmare Tuesday evening when a willing Sacramento woman met a prospective buyer for her 2004 Kia Rio.

The pair met up at the McDonald’s on Fruitridge and Power Inn roads Tuesday night.

The victim had already had the suspect and who she believed was his 15-year-old daughter, in the car for a test drive, when he asked to go around some more. She had stepped out momentarily, but the man and his teen took off before she could get back inside.

She was not hurt.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 30’s, who wore a blue pendelton shirt and baseball cap.

Sacramento police took a report. By 10 p.m., the suspect and car were still missing.
