Five Men Shutdown a UK Sneaker Store With Knives and Metal Poles

What you're about to read is an actual news story and not a scene from an upcoming Skepta video. On Tuesday a group of men, armed with knives and metal poles, went into a JD Sports in Enfield, a borough of London, and got into an altercation a store employee, the Enfield Gazette & Advertiser reports.

The altercation took place around 12 p.m., but appears not to be related to a pair of sneakers. Nonetheless, it was a scary incident for those in the near vicinity. "I had just bought my shopping and was trying to leave when we were told to get back from the entrance," a shopper said. "They locked us in and there was a lot of panic as people were saying they had knives. I didn’t hang around."

Another person close to the scene said, "I saw a young guy being pinned down by security guards."

There's no evidence of the perpetrators running into the store in all-black tracksuits and Huaraches, but that's how we're envisioning this scene in our minds.
