A man was left shoeless after a gun-toting robber forced him to hand over his Nike Air Max sneakers in the parking lot of an Anne Arundel County mall, police said.

Officers headed to Marley Station Mall on Ritchie Highway just before 10 p.m. Friday and found a man who said a teenager brandished a gun and demanded his shoes, police said. He handed them over and the gunman fled, police said.

The 16-year-old suspect was tracked down nearby, with the shoes near him, and was identified by the victim, according to police.

Police identified the suspect as Jesse Jordan Scrivner of the 700 block of Crucible Court in Glen Burnie. He has been charged as an adult with robbery.
