A 14-year-old boy trying to meet up to buy a Ps4 video gaming system was robbed of his cash and dragged from a vehicle.

It happened around 5:45 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 25, in the 1800 block of Park Place in Elkhart, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth.

The Elkhart Truth reports the boy told police the suspect pulled up in a black passenger car and grabbed $200 cash from him, pushed him down and began to drive away.

The victim held onto the window and was dragged, skinning both knees and hitting the back of his head when he fell to the street.

So far, there is no word of any suspects or arrests.

Protip: make Craigslist deals in the parking lot of your local police department. They have cameras, and the ne’er do wells are very unlikely to try anything there.

He was dragged BY a vehicle, not FROM a vehicle.

14YO and taking money to buy something he got where and how? A 14YO dragged from ‘his’ vehicle??? Where where his parental units? Oh, nowhere to be found; and not in the story at all.

Typical destruction of society lack of narrative.
