A 15-year-old boy was robbed of his tennis shoes by a man armed with a gun Tuesday evening on South Jefferson Davis Parkway in Gert Town, New Orleans police said.

The victim was near South Jefferson Davis Parkway and Howard Avenue around 8:20 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 3, when he was confronted by a stranger who demanded his Jordan tennis shoes, according to the initial NOPD report.

“When the victim refused, the perpetrator raised his sweatshirt and showed the victim the handle of a gun in his waistband,” the report states. “The victim complied and the perpetrator fled.”
