Police in Roslyn, NY have arrested a pair of brothers who robbed a man of approximately $1,800 worth of shoes.
According to police, Christopher Vilca, 21, and Jean Vilca-Alvites,19, approached a 35-year-old man outside if the Roslyn Hotel. Although the three had engaged in sneaker transactions in the past, on this occasion a dispute ensued and this led to Villa-Alvites letting the man know that he had a gun in his waistband. He then compelled the man to relinquish the bag that allegedly contained $1,800 worth of sneakers. The brothers took the bag and then departed the scene in a black Honda Pilot.
Days later police located the aforementioned SUV with Vilca-Alvites in it and subsequently arrested him. Vilca turned himself in soon thereafter.
The brothers each face charges of 2nd-degree robbery, 3rd-degree robbery and 4th-degree grand larceny.
