The story took place back in February 2016, but recently the video went viral and has spared some debates whether the SUV owner was being defensive or it was an attack. (Video below article)
A 17-year-old Brooklyn teenager is missing an arm, and a 39-year-old man is facing attempted murder charges. This is the result of a incident in New York on Friday that unfolded from a seemingly routine Craigslist transaction. The 39-year-old man known only as “Phil” is a regular buyer and seller of sneakers on Craigslist. He agreed to a sale with the teenager and the pair met in the middle of the day on a busy street. It’s here that things went wrong. Climbing into Phil’s SUV, it’s reported that the 17-year-old pulled a gun on the man, took the sneakers and walked off.
Rather than calling the police, Phil took things into his own hands. He did a quick u-turn and ran over the teenager attempting to walk away with the sneakers. The thief’s arm was severed in the collision, but adrenaline caused him to run off, with one arm, before collapsing outside his house.
The boy is in stable condition and doctors plan to reattach his arm, while Phil is facing charges.
