Prosecutors filed felony aggravated robbery charges against a 32-year-old Minneapolis man after he was caught on video punching a child in the face and stealing the boy's iPad.
Police in Hennepin County were dispatched Thursday to the intersection of 28th Street and Nicollet Avenue South after a report that a man was being chased by a group of men.
Upon arrival, the police met 32-year-old Aaron Wayne Stillday, who said that men had chased him for no reason. However, police learned that the pursuit began when Stillday punched an 8-year-old boy walking out of daycare and stole his iPad.
Stillday allegedly approached the boy, saying: “Give me that, n****.”
In the video, the boy can be seen lying motionless on the ground as his nose bleeds.
The boy was taken to the hospital and Stillday was taken into custody.
On Monday, Stillday was charged with felony first-degree aggravated robbery.
