We've seen some pretty senseless incidents of sneaker violence recently, but this might very well be the most bizarre story yet.
According to DNA Info, a Brooklyn teenager made his way to the Lorimer Street J train stop with the intentions of selling two pairs of "Valentine's Day" Air Jordan Retro Vs yesterday. Instead, the 13-year-old victim was met by a robber who asked to look at both pairs, then taunted him with the line, "You getting me tight, you know I'm Crip right?"
The robber then passed the stolen goods off to an accomplice and proceeded to spray a canister of unknown chemicals into the victim's eyes before fleeing on foot.
At time of publishing, police are currently investigating the situation.
