A young man was arrested after he allegedly attempted to steal a pair of Balenciaga shoes from a woman who had been selling them on a marketplace app.

Authorities in Oklahoma City said a woman had listed her designer footwear on the app Offer Up when she was contacted by someone with the username ‘Turbo.’

Turbo, aka 21-year-old Taber Carter, reportedly made his way to a local T-Mobile store after first agreeing to meet the seller at a 7-Eleven, to which he didn’t show up.

Police say Carter met the victim, who was with her mother, at his car to make the exchange, which was when the young man pulled out a black ‘Glock-like’ pistol and pointed it at the woman’s head.

Staff Sergeant Dillon Quirk told a local outlet: ‘The victim indicated she was there to sell shoes to the suspect, during that exchange, the suspect pulled out a firearm and demanded the property from the victim.’

The seller said she handed the shoes to Carter but was able to snatch one back from him before he drove away.

A pair of Balenciaga shoes can range in price from anywhere between a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. 

The gun-wielding thief attempted to demand the other shoe, but the woman told him she’d already locked it inside her car, according to the police report.

Carter drove away and was reportedly found passed out in his car several hours later by police who were called regarding a welfare check.

A police chase ensued when Carter attempted to flee the scene in his vehicle.

During the chase, the 21-year-old crashed into a power pole, which caused a local power outage.

The crash reportedly also caused a small grass fire that was quickly extinguished by an emergency fire crew. 

He was eventually taken into police custody and booked on charges of endangering others while eluding a police officer, as well as robbery or attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon.

In his mugshot, the young man appears with a swollen-shut black-eye, and cuts and scrapes all across the right side of his forehead – possibly from the crash into the power pole.

He is currently being held without bond.

Oklahoma City Police have warned the public that anyone who is meeting up with a prospective buyer to sell an item should do it in a public place with lots of cameras.

 An on-the-nose suggestion is the parking lot of a local police station.
