According to officials, Trayon Christian claimed Barneys and the New York Police Department profiled him for credit card fraud because he bought a $349 belt. Well now the young man is $45,000 richer because of a settlement from the city.

Trayon Christian used his debit card to buy a  Ferragamo belt from Barneys’ Upper East Side in 2013. After he left, the Queens resident was hassled by two undercover NYPD detectives. The cops detained Christian — who was an engineering student at the New York City College of Technology, where he also held a work-study job —because they didn’t think a young, black man could lawfully purchase the high-priced accessory, he said.
