Apparently, even the prospect of being mortally wounded is not enough to stop someone from chasing the crooks who stole his Air Jordans. A 14-year-old was robbed and stabbed in the back for his kicks in Washington, DC on Thursday (Dec. 4) morning.
Police say a 14-year-old boy on his way to Hospitality High School was at 9th and T streets NW just before 8 a.m. Law enforcement sources say he encountered a pair of robbers armed with a knife just across from the school; they apparently wanted his Nike Air Jordans.
The two men approached the teen from behind and stole his Air Jordans and cell phone before stabbing him in the back, sources say. The injured boy then chased after the robbers and followed them onto a train at the Shaw-Howard U Metro station. The teen got off at the Gallery Place-Chinatown station, where a Metropolitan Police officer saw him bleeding and immediately called an ambulance.
It’s unclear which model the teen was wearing, but we’re guessing the Air Jordan 6s that dropped on Black Friday are a possibility.
Luckily, the unnamed teen’s injuries were not life threatening while the two thieves remain at large.
We gotta ask; how did the reporter below get her hands on a crispy pair of those 6s, though?
