Sheriff: 13-year-old robbed at gunpoint of Air Jordan shoes

WAVERLY, Neb. (AP) — A 13-year-old girl was robbed at gunpoint of Air Jordan shoes after meeting a man to sell them at a park in Waverly, Nebraska, authorities said.

Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner said deputies were called to Jaycee Park at 5:15 p.m. Monday, the Lincoln Journal-Star reported.

The girl told deputies two men pulled up during the sale and one of them pulled out a handgun and ordered her to get out of her vehicle. She got out and ran off, without getting money for the shoes.

Authorities arrested Elijah Hergott early Tuesday on suspicion of robbery, terroristic threats and use of a weapon to commit a felony. 

A second person, a 17-year-old male, was also arrested Tuesday afternoon. Wagner said his office believes the juvenile was using a realistic-looking bb gun.

Deputies recovered the shoes.
