BRONX - The NYPD arrested a teen for robbing a man he met on social media who was trying to sell him a jacket.

Cops arrested a 17-year-old male and charged him with robbery.

At around 3:40 pm on November 11, a 24-year-old man went to West 242 Street and Broadway. Cops said the man met an individual on social media when he was trying to sell a jacket.

The seller met a male on West 242nd street and allowed the potential buyer to try on the jacket. That’s when the buyer pulled out a handgun and robbed the seller, cops said.

The gunman took the jacket, hopped on a gray Citi bike and rode away.
