Arrests warrants made public Tuesday accuse two Wake County sisters of posting a fake Craiglist advertisement in order to lure a man so they could rob him.

Deputies have charged 28-year-old Sherida Quanette Bullock and 21-year-old Acqua Bullock, both of 306 Windy Hill Drive in Wendell, with attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to rob with a dangerous weapon.

According to arrest warrants filed against the sisters, the women put an advertisement on the Craiglist website stating they had six smart phones to sell for $1,100.

Raleigh resident Ibrahima Diouf responded to the ad and agreed to meet the women with the money.

"I told her I wanted those phones if you have them cause I had some friends who wanted the phone," Diouf said.

Diouf says Acqua Bullock told him to go to a convenience store in Wendell and meet her sister who would take him to a house where he could purchase the phones.

Diouf says Sherida Bullock drove him to a house, but he got an uneasy feeling.

"I told her I didn't feel comfortable there," Diouf said.

So he left, but she followed him and convinced him to return.

The sale never happened, because Diouf says he was welcomed back by a hail of gunfire.

He was not injured, but several bullets hit his vehicle.

On Tuesday, the Bullock sisters faced a judge, who refused to lower their bond from $125,000.

Diouf says he is convinced their intentions went beyond trying to rob him.

"What I believe they was going to kill me, that way they can take all the information back from me," Diouf said.

Meanwhile, authorities are continuing to search for a third woman who may have been involved in the case.

Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison said the case serves as a warning about the potential dangers of selling things online.

"Make sure you don't go to somewhere that is isolated or go to a person's house. I don't suggest that. I mean, I know people do it all the time, but you just don't know what you're getting into," he explained.
