Armed Teen Thug Steals Sneakers From Boy In Boca, Say Cops

BOCA RATON, FL ( — Boca Raton Police are releasing the details this morning of a stunning armed sneaker robbery that took place earlier this month in Vista Vede Park at Vista Verde Park, 6200 North Verde Trail.

A 13 year old boy had two pairs of sneakers stolen by a teen who allegedly had a semi-automatic handgun.

The victim told officers he had arranged through an acquaintance, to meet a subject in Vista Verde Park to sell him two pair of sneakers, valued at $675. The victim was dropped off by his mother and walked east through the park. The victim was walking on the sidewalk when a male came out of the bushes and asked if he was Jason. The victim answered yes and placed the two pair of sneakers, a pair of Nike Air Jordan and a pair of Lebron James, on a trash can. The suspect lifted his shirt and displayed what appeared to be a black semi-automatic handgun and said, “I’m not playing.” The suspect ordered the victim to empty his pockets which contained only an iPhone. The suspect took the phone, shoes and left the park.

The victim told officers the name of the person who had arranged the original transaction. On Monday, February 13, detectives spoke with the acquaintance, who identified the suspect as 16-year old Samuel Felsher. Detectives conducted a photo lineup with the victim, who identified Felsher as the robber. Detectives arrested Felsher later that day and charged him with robbery with a firearm.
