Stolen Xbox through gumtree from younger brother

Good Morning

How do I take this further?
Guy has ceased all contact with me (blocked) and I can not get hold of him? Where do I report him?

I have screenshots of how I tried to get money from him that he ows (R2400) I believe it is theft now.
He bought an xbox and my younger brother handled the deal (he needed to get money for a vet bill for his pet)
The guy sent a Proof of payment that he made the payment (my brother saw it but did not see that the guy typed in the wrong acc.) and gave him the xbox.

Person’s Name is :
And his number is:
063 177 9174

Hope to sort this out asap… I don’t know if you guy’s can help I just don’t know who to turn too.

I really don’t want to get the law involved, but if I have to I guess I have too.

    Sorry to hear your story Shaun. Advertised my iphone today and got a response from the same guy. Also sent me a fake sms confirmation of his payment and he was eager to get the phone asap - was gonna send his "driver" to collect. I told him I am NOT giving him the phone until I see the money in my account. I don't care about what the sms says. His latest number is 0738110877. People must be extra careful when selling phones, laptops and gaming consoles - they are hot items for criminals trawling Gumtree and OLX! Be careful out there.
