WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 17-year-old Wichita boy has been robbed while trying to buy a pit bull puppy.

Local media outlets report the victim told police that he requested information about pit bull puppies on Facebook. Lt. James Espinoza said someone the victim knew responded and gave him an address for where a transaction would happen.

Espinoza said the victim went to the location Monday morning, where two people told him to go to the back of the house. Once there, the suspects pulled out a gun and took the $150 the victim had to buy the puppy, as well as his shoes and a chain necklace.

The victim left the area uninjured.

According to Espinoza, the suspects may be people the victim knows from school.
