A 28-year-old man told officers he was lured into a Monday night robbery in the 200 block of Oakley Drive, according to reports.
Officials said they have not identified the individual who took the victim's $170 white and gold necklace of Jesus and $70 silver necklace of a cross at about 1 a.m. Police have not provided a detailed description of the robber.
Reports indicate that police received a Monday call at 3 a.m. concerning the theft and met with the victim.
The victim told officials that someone named "Scoot" called him at 1 a.m. and asked him to come over to the 200 block of Oakley Drive. "Scoot" promised the victim that he would pay him the $15 he owed him, officers said.

When the 28-year-old man met with the "Scoot" at his residence, "Scoot" and unknown man complimented the victim on his necklaces and asked to wear them, police said.
The victim declined, and the unidentified man asked the victim to go to the parking lot and look for something. When the 28-year-old man followed his direction, the stranger snatched both necklaces off of the victim's neck and fled the area, records show.
The victim told police that he confronted "Scoot," but "Scoot" didn't responded.
Authorities continue to investigate the robbery.
