A black, mentally challenged Florida man was allegedly robbed of his "Grand Theft Auto V" video game by a couple who intended on robbing a white person, according to a police report of the incident.
The robbery occurred around 4 p.m. Monday at a McDonald’s parking lot in Delray Beach, Fla., where the victim, 21-year-old Rohan Dawkins, was allegedly punched and kicked by 25-year-old Adele Jones as Tommy Davis, 27, grabbed "GTA V" and drove away, according to the Delray Beach Police Department report obtained by the Smoking Gun.
Davis allegedly confessed to the robbery when he was brought to a police station for questioning, according to the report. The 27-year-old claimed he committed the robbery to help finance a tire purchase. Police believe the game was sold to a third party.
“Mr. Davis was very apologetic and offered to pay the victim for the game,” the report stated. “He stated that he stole the property because he needed new tires for a car. He later confessed to trying to sell the game in Boynton Beach as alleged by the [GameStop] store manager Chris Kenny.”
Davis’ confession was allegedly backed up by Jones, who said the pair went to the Boynton Beach Mall to try and sell the best-selling video game.
Police said the 25-year-old said she knew that she and Davis “were going to GameStop to do a ‘lick,’ which to her means to ‘catch a cracker,’ which is slang for robbing a white person.
“She stated that she knew Tommy Davis was stealing something when the victim opened the door [of the car] to get his property back,” the report continues. “She states that she fought the victim until Mr. Davis was able to drive away in the car. Ms. Jones also advised us that they went to the Boynton Beach Mall to try to sell the stolen game.”
Davis was charged with strong arm robbery and dealing in stolen property, according to the report. Dawkins was not hurt in the incident.
