WYCKOFF, N.J. (AP) - Police in northern New Jersey are searching for a man who robbed two teenagers of a pair of sneakers at knifepoint.

It was the second such robbery in a week.

Two 13-year-olds in Wyckoff communicated online with a man who offered to pay $360 for a pair of new Nike Air Jordan Retro 3 sneakers.

Police say the boys met the man at a shopping center where he brandished a knife and made off with the sneakers.

The Record (https://bit.ly/1nx5RpC ) newspaper reports a 16-year-old in Clifton was robbed at knifepoint after communicating online with a man who offered to buy an expensive brand of sneakers a week earlier.
