Just when it became easier to track down a coveted pair of Jordans —thanks to an influx of product on the market—it seems like it’s going to be getting that much harder to keep them on your feet. In the past two months, three 14-year-old boys in Brooklyn have been attacked by a group of adolescents and liberated of their belongings; including their Air Jordans, cell phones, MetroCards, and ID’s.

The latest robbery occurred on January 14 on Troy Ave near Rutland Road.

Reports DNA Info New York:

Police said the most recent robbery happened as a 14-year-old boy was walking home from school on Troy Avenue near Rutland Road around 3:30 p.m. on Jan. 14.

As he passed the northeast corner of the intersection, multiple teenagers, approximately 16 and 17 years old, approached him and began punching him.

The suspects then forcibly removed his Metrocard, identification and Jordan sneakers and fled on foot.

The theft is similar to two others the occurred last month within blocks of the Jan. 14 incident, all to 14-year-old boys wearing the brand name sneakers while walking home from school in East Flatbush.

Each of the robberies have occurred in and around the Rutland Road area in East Flatbush Brooklyn, NY. Police have no suspects but believe the same group is responsible for all the Jordan jackings.

Be safe out there my fellow sneakerheads.
