Police have arrested a man they say is responsible for robbing a teenager of a pair of high-end Nike shoes at White Marsh Mall.
Anthony Charles Green, 22, was arrested on July 31 at his home in the 5400 block of Hillburn Avenue in Baltimore City. At the time he was arrested, police said he was wearing a black and brown pair of Nike Foamposites, the same pair of shoes a teenager reported he was robbed of at White Marsh Mall.
Green, who was charged with robbery, second-degree assault and theft, is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $150,000 bond.
At about 7:40 p.m. on July 20, two males allegedly assaulted a 15-year-old boy in a mall bathroom, pushing him to the ground. One of the men then allegedly removed a pair of brown and black Nike Foamposit shoes, valued at about $220, from the boy, according to police.
They also tried to steal the victim's cell phone, but were unsuccessful, a police report shows.
At the time, the man leading the robbery was described by police as a black male, between 18 and 20 years old, about 160 pounds and 5 feet 9 inches tall, wearing an orange and white polo shirt, with a tattoo on his neck and a cross tattoo between his eyes.
Police continue to search for the second suspect in the July 20 robbery, and are investigating any possible connection between Green and another robbery on July 14 where shoes were stolen from a teenager at the mall.
