>NEW YORK -- A Brooklyn teenager lost his arm in a Craigslist robbery gone wrong on Friday afternoon, authorities said.
>Police say the 17-year-old boy connected with a man on Craigslist who was selling a pair of Air Jordan sneakers. They met about 1 p.m. near Avenue M and East 84th Street in Canarsie, where the teen got into the seller's SUV and pulled out a gun, police said. The teen stole the sneakers and then walked away.
>The teen managed to make it only 100 yards or so when the driver made a U-turn, stepped on the gas and ran over the teenager, severing his arm, police told WPIX.
>The teen, missing his arm, managed to jump on an MTA bus, where he demanded a MetroCard. Just then, the victim yanked the teenager off the bus and told the driver he'd robbed him.
>The teen escaped again and ran home, where he collapsed, police said.
>An ambulance took the boy — and his severed arm — to a nearby hospital. The teen is in serious but stable condition. It was not immediately clear whether doctors were attempting to reattach his arm.
