GALVESTON — A boy, 5, playing at a recreation center Saturday was pushed to the ground and robbed of a cellphone. Police said an adult was arrested after officers convinced him to return to the scene.
Jerrome Riches Dominick, 22 was charged with robbery, stemming from a Saturday night incident at Wright Cuney Park and Recreation Center, 718 41st St., in Galveston, police Lt. Michael Gray said Monday. Dominick remained jailed Monday on a $25,000 bond.
The boy, who was with his mother, was standing in the playground near the swings when witnesses saw a man approach him shortly after 8 p.m., Gray said.
“The man pushed down the juvenile, stood over him, took his cellphone and fled into Sandpiper Cove apartments,” Gray said.
