The man, well into adulthood, tried to prey on a weaker teen. He was shown in the video harassing the kid just for some money. Now police are searching for the man for attempted robbery and the trauma he left on the boy.
Ran Without Taking Anything
Police reported that the suspect approached the harmless teen in front of 141-40 84th Dr. just after 11 pm on January 24. There were surveillance cameras installed on the screen, so the police received a good look at the suspect. They posted pictures of the man but blurred the face of the teenager.
The man demanded the teen to hand over everything he had and then sifted through the boy’s pockets. He didn’t find anything as the boy is just 14 and he didn’t even have a mobile phone. Or, he had a phone, but the robber still decided to run. In the video, he was seen running in the other direction with nothing in his hand. He didn’t take anything.
Had Something In The Hand
According to the surveillance footage, the man and the boy did a rather vague arm wrestle. The boy had something in his hand, which he wanted to save, and the man was trying to snatch it. But then, the kid didn’t let go, and it was already so much time wasted. The boy met the man in front of a store, and its believed he had just got out of the store with something.
The police officers are searching for the man on the charges of attempted robbery. The kid was left traumatized, and the family wants to press charges. All said and done, no harm was instilled upon the kid and he went to his home safely. But, the man still tried to rob the kid, and for that, he has to face a trial shortly.
