Suspect in Safaree Samuels’ Armed Robbery Was Childhood Friend (PHOTO)

Safaree Samuels is relieved to know the two men who held him up have been caught, but a new revelation may leave the rapper shaken up once again.

One of the suspects who approached the “Hunnid” rapper, pulled a gun and robbed him of over $183K worth of jewelry has been identified as Shawn Harewood, a New York native who has been photographed partying with the Brooklyn rapper and ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj.

TMZ reports Harewood and Samuels have known each other since the age of 14, but haven’t spoken since Safaree’s breakup from the Pinkprint MC.

 

A teary-eyed Samuels shared the sad news of the robbery with Angie Martinez just hours after it occurred, saying the thieves took over $150,000 worth of jewelry. Through tears, the reality star revealed, “Two dudes with guns ran up on me. They had me face down on the floor with a gun to my head. They just took everything.”
