AKRON, Ohio– A 19-year-old man was robbed at gunpoint while trying to sell a pair of shoes Wednesday night.

The victim and a friend arranged to sell the Nike Air Jordans on Instagram, and went to meet the potential buyer at Orlando Avenue and Slosson Street. That’s when they were approached by three men.

Police said one of the suspects pulled a revolver from his hooded-sweatshirt and pointed it at the victim. The three men took the shoes and ran towards Lawton Street.

Anyone with information should contact the Akron Police Department.
