Man Mugged for his Fancy $900 Sneakers on Essex Street
Police are looking for three men wanted in connection with a robbery near Essex and Delancey Streets Friday night.
At roughly 8:00pm, three African American males approached an Asian man outside the Municipal parking garage at 107 Essex Street. The ringleader of the group reportedly pushed the victim to the sidewalk, while the two accomplices pulled off his sneakers. Apparently the stolen kicks were a pair of Balenciaga Triple S, fashionwear that’s valued at some $900.
The trio then fled the scene.
Police say that the victim was not hurt in the incident, and that the investigation is ongoing.
