Wylie police are investigating a robbery last week during which a 15-year-old victim was assaulted when he met an individual to whom he was going to sell a pair of shoes.
The incident happened about 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5, in the 400 block of Rutherford Street.
Sgt. Donald English reported that the 15-year-old male agreed over the Internet to sell a pair of shoes to an individual, but when he met the purchaser he was assaulted and robbed of the shoes. The suspect fled in a waiting vehicle.
The victim sustained minor injuries that did not require medical treatment, English said.
Wylie police detectives have identified a possible suspect but are not releasing information on the suspect because of pending formal charges, the sergeant explained.
Wylie Police Department offers a safe exchange zone for use by citizens to buy, sell and trade e-commerce items. The zone is located at the police department, 2000 N. Hwy. 78, and is under constant surveillance and monitoring.
