A 17-year-old Little Rock resident reported being robbed of thousands of dollars worth of clothes and shoes that he was trying to sell through a phone app after the would-be buyers showed up, grabbed the items and fled, authorities said.

It happened about 11 p.m. Tuesday outside a home in the 300 block of Ridgeway Drive, which runs north off Markham Street west of Kavanaugh Boulevard in Little Rock's Hillcrest neighborhood.

The teen victim said he arranged for the buyer, who claimed through the app to be a student at Cabot High School, to meet him at his residence to complete the transaction, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.

Two people got out of a white car that pulled up, the victim told investigators, while a third stayed in the vehicle. One of the people approached the victim, grabbed two bags of clothes and shoes and "forcefully" pulled them away, causing the teen to fall to the ground, the report said.

The group drove south from the area.

The teen estimated the value of the stolen items to be around $3,000.

No arrests had been made at the time of the report.

Police stations ought to have a surveilled room where people can conduct these transactions.

Probably some Cabot gang members. A little common sense goes a long way in these type of situations.

How could this kid's parents allow him to 'conduct the transaction' at 11pm?! In Hillcrest?!

The LRPD does have transaction locations.
I bet the kids parents were unaware their boy was doing this.

Reading the headline, I thought they stole the clothes he was wearing. I felt sorry for him. Now I am wondering where he got the clothes he was selling.
