WOODBRIDGE, Va. (WUSA) -- Prince William County police say they arrested a Woodbridge man for a robbery involving shoes but are still looking for his accomplice.

Wednesday at 7:22 p.m., police say officers responded to the 2200 block of Turnbuckle Lane in Woodbridge for a strong armed robbery.  

An 18-year-old man told them that he met 19-year-old Saif Waheed Mirza (also known as John Gotti) on Facebook and arranged to sell him two pairs of sneakers.  Mirza arrived with another man. Mirza reportedly grabbed the sneakers and tried to run away with them. The victim tried to grab the shoes back, and got into a struggle with Mirza. The other man then assaulted the victim, before he and Mirza fled the scene with the two pairs of sneakers, according to police.

The victim suffered minor injuries.

Mirza was arrested on Friday and charged with robbery, malicious wounding, and assault and battery. 

Police are looking for the other suspect. He is described as a black male between 18 and 25 years old, 6'2" tall and 180 pounds. The man was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and gray sneakers.
