Armed Thieves Targeting Victims Wearing Yeezy Sneakers: Police

Police in Brooklyn are trying to track down two armed thieves who they say are targeting victims wearing Yeezy sneakers.

The NYPD says the two men have struck at least six times since April in Flatbush and East Flatbush, getting away with several pairs of the expensive shoes.

The duo walk up to their victims who agree on Facebook to meet up with them, pull out a gun and force them to take off their Yeezy sneakers, police said.

The pair have gotten away with at least four different pairs of the shoes, an Apple Watch, an iPhone and cash.

Police released surveillance footage of the men in the hopes of stopping them before they strike for a seventh time.
