Two teens on Wednesday robbed a person who had used Facebook to try to sell a pair of tennis shoes, Anne Arundel County police say.

About 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, police were called to Nursery and Patapsco roads in Linthicum Heights, where the victim said he had met the suspects to sell a pair of tennis shoes.

The victim had used Facebook to negotiate the price, then made plans to meet the buyer on Nursery Road, they said.

When he arrived, the two male teenagers approached him, he told police. One punched him in the face, and the other grabbed the shoes, police said. The victim chased after the pair, but stopped when one of the teens pointed a hand gun at him.

Zachary Nicholas Lynch, 18, of Glen Burnie, and Nicholas Keith Davis, 16, of Linthicum, were charged with armed robbery and related offenses. Davis is being charged as an adult.
