Sneaker-related crime is all-too-common these days and we’ve heard the stories of guns being pulled out, people getting jumped, and all of that nonsense. Today, we’re learning of one of the most bizarre and graphic attempted sneaker robberies in recent memory, and it’s the victim that might be under more heat. Philip Pierre (39), the seller, posted an ad on Craigslist and agreed to meet up with prospective buyer Zachary Sam (17). The teen got into Pierre’s car near the corner of Avenue M and East 84th St. and pulled out a gun on the seller. He took the shoes (a pair of Jordan 8s) and fled the scene, but Pierre took the law into his own hands by making a quick U-turn in his vehicle and running over the fleeing thief with his Honda Pilot.

The collision pinned the thief against a fence, causing his arm the sever completely. He fled the scene, without his arm, onto a bus, but was pulled out by Pierre. Sam escaped once more and ran home, where he collapsed in front of his home. Pierre is currently in custody with attempted murder charges, while Sam is still recovering in the hospital; it is unknown if his arm was reattached.

Thief got what he deserved hopefully the man who got robbed can beat the charge

the argument will go both ways on this one...people are going to judge both parties involved...we have a thief and we have someone reacting to having a gun in his face...If dude had not lost his arm then we would obviously view this totally different.  he was right in chasing him down, but he DID cross the line when he ran him over....he definitely needs to go to jail for what he did. They both need to be in jail. 


His "cousin" is also very ignorant since his response to everyone that interviews him is "what would you have done?"

@akachuy   I disagree. I believe people should have the right to protect their property, even at the cost of the thief's life. 


The robber got what he deserved

@RT5 I disagree, the victim was just protecting his property.

The fucked up part is that the dude that got robbed now has the worst charge. He is being charged with attempted murder vs arm robbery. The lesson here is, if you get robbed, give it up and call the cops.

Good for that kid. And why would u just wait and call the cops. If a gun is pointed at you, why TF would u "just" call the cops when you know damn well this kid will be out in a week doing the same damn thing. I know damn well that kid ain't going to rob again.

People who steal from other should get a cow branding on their face and balls cut off and shoved down their throat.
