Be wary of where you ride your hoverboard or you will become a “vic.” A Philadelphia man learned this the hard way when he was robbed at gunpoint for the trendy contraption. 

The robbery was captured on security camera, and sh*t got real.

Reports Philadelphia NBC:

Philadelphia police are searching for the armed man who stole an iPhone and Segway hoverboard during a robbery inside a take-out restaurant.

The incident happened about 10 p.m. on October 5 at a Chinese take-out store in the 3800 block of Pulaski Street in Tioga.

The victims — an 18-year-old and a 19-year-old male — entered the store and the suspect was already inside.

The suspect then walked out the store, retrieved a handgun from a car parked outside and walked back inside.

The suspect pointed the handgun at the victims and demanded their belongings. The suspect stole a wallet, an iPhone 6 and a Segway hoverboard from the victims.

The suspect then walked out of the store, put the hoverboard in the trunk of his car and drove away.

In the security footage, you can see dude roll back in the Chinese food store and start demanding the customers to give up their valuables; phones, cash and of course, he grabbed the hoverboard on the way out. But notice how two people walked out of the shop with barely a glance from the robber.

For the record, those hoverboards you’ve seen your favorite rappers in (and who got them for free) cost somewhere between $300 and $700 at retail.

Don’t be food on your block, and respect the jux.
