Thieves stole a man’s luxury car and his expensive shoes.

Police in Cleveland, Ohio, are investigating a carjacking in the Tremont neighborhood.

The carjacking victim, a 22-year-old man, told police that he was sitting in his 2004 Porsche Cayenne at 11:45 p.m. on Wednesday, waiting for a friend to get out of an apartment before being robbed.

While sitting in his Porsche, 2 men came to his window and ordered him to get out. One of the men pulled a gun and threatened to kill him if he did not obey them.

The victim did as he was told and got out of the car. The assailants then ordered him to take off his Nike Airmax shoes.

The men grabbed the sneakers, jumped into his Porsche and sped away. Police found the Porsche later that night. The shoes were not recovered.

The victim also told police that his mobile phone, tablet and wallet containing credit cards and Social Security card, were in the car when it was stolen. So far, no arrests have been made.
