Once in a newspaper article, once in a TV comedy show produced locally. This is used for robbing some unfortunate kid of the latest trendy article of clothing such as baseball caps with American insignia and seems to be current in Auckland, New Zealand, among street gangs. As their language seems to be heavily influenced by the American media, I was wondering if this is an American term. Geordie Halliday
