A ticket scalper was made to refund tickets for the cancelled Lil Wayne concert at gunpoint.

A ticket scalper was made to refund tickets for the cancelled Lil Wayne concert at gunpoint.

Police say a woman bought the tickets for $350 after seeing them for sale on Craigslist. When the concert was cancelled she tried to contact the seller, but her attempts went unanswered.

With the help of a male friend, she got the seller to reply when she used a fake name and pretended to be interested in tickets for another concert. When they met, police say the man pulled a gun on him and made him withdraw $350 from a bank machine.

After the pair left, the seller asked bank employees to call 9-1-1.

A man and woman aged 22 and 23 have been arrested for theft and gun-related offences.
