According to Charlotte police, as Jordan and his wife were pushing their babies in a stroller a man approached them and asked for Jordan’s autograph before reaching in to the stroller and grabbing one of the twins.   Yvette was able to grab the baby before the man could get away, but he was able to remove the baby’s shoes before fleeing.

According to the police report, the custom baby shoes stolen by the man were worth nearly $3000.

“It was absolutely terrifying,” said Joseph Goldsmith of Charlotte, who witnessed the crime. “I saw Jordan walking with his kids and then this crazy looking dude came up and tried to take his kid right out of his stroller.”

The man has not yet been captured.  He was described as a black male in his 20’s or 20’s last seen wearing baggy jeans and a hooded sweatshirt.
