At around 7 p.m. on Friday, May 3, a 15-year-old boy was shopping at a kiosk on Spring Street when a 16-year-old boy approached him, asked, "You know what this is?" and grabbed the victim's camera from the victim's hands. The victim refused to let go of his camera and struggled to hold onto it when the would-be thief stated, "My man's got the grip." As he said this, a second 16-year-old male accomplice reached for his waistband and simulated a firearm, causing the victim to fear serious physical injury. The first young man then took the camera, and both of the men fled in an unknown direction. Police conducted a canvass of the area but were unable to locate the thieves or the camera, which was a Nikon D 3100 digital camera valued at $500.
