Brown, who was excited about their reunification and even lost a shoe running toward him, also took to social media to explain the moment Yurman was brought back to her.

“The one shoe? Listen! I was running and did not want to buss this butt. The shoe came off! My boy is home!” Brown said.

Yurman was stolen from Brown at gunpoint at around 8:20 p.m. on Saturday, June 29, while she was walking in the 1700 block of Fort Davis Street SE.

Metro police officers were able to locate the stolen pooch after Yurman’s owner was contacted by someone claiming they would be willing to sell him back to her, according to an MPD news release.

Detectives were then able to conduct a sting operation resulting in the arrests of 27-year-old Raphael Lambert Loundermon II and 27-year-old Khaliah Johnson, who were both charged with extortion and receiving stolen property.
