Columbus police are looking for four teens after one pulled a pistol on a 16-year-old and took his $160 sneakers late Tuesday on Rigdon Road at Baldwin Street.

The youth was in fair condition after the 10:45 p.m. robbery near the stop sign on Rigdon Road. Police said he sustained swelling to his left jaw and cheek after he was struck.

Police said the teen was walking near the area when four young men in a Chevy Trailblazer stopped near him. One pointed a pistol at him and demanded his black Nike Air Jordans valued at $160.
