A 17-year-old Florissant man robbed another man of his Air Jordan shoes Friday at the James J. Eagan Center.
Florissant Police said the owner agreed to meet Kirby C. Butler at the Eagan Center to sell him the shoes. Butler took the shoes and pointed what appeared to be a handgun at the man, police said. He then told the victim to look the other way and he fled.
Butler, of the 2300 block of Palomino Lane in Florissant, was charged Monday with first-degree robbery.
Police said the victim identified Butler as the robber.
Butler is being held in St. Louis County jail in lieu of a $50,000 bond.
