Muhammad explained that a “young black male” snuck up behind him before threatening him with a firearm.

He “just came up to me and said, ‘Give me your earrings and your backpack,'” the young man added. “He took everything I had. At the time, he didn’t take my cell phone, and that’s what made me call 911.”

Muhammad also detailed following his assailant — later identified as 18-year-old Antwan Robertson — and recounted the terror his next, several victims experienced.

“One lady, she was in tears. She said she couldn’t believe it. He had the gun in her mouth.”

Authorities¬†eventually arrested Robertson, for which Muhammad “congratulated the police.”

“Police can be hostile and very belligerent,” he stated. “Friday night, I met some officers who [were] about business, and that was getting a bad guy off the street.”

Muhammad noted that while he is still “very anti-police,” he is¬†not against “police relations and community relations.”
