LAS VEGAS, Nevada (May 21, 2013) – Jacob Dismont, 18, and Michael Solid, 21, are facing charges of open murder, robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery after they allegedly stole a teenager’s iPad and subsequently ran over him with their vehicle as the boy clung to the computer device.
The Apple iPad was a recent birthday present to Marcos Arenas, 15, whose family is now coping with the tremendous loss of their son. Dismont, a former star baseball player at Sierra Vista High School, was the suspect who physically took the iPad from Arenas and Solid was driving the getaway vehicle that drove off as the boy clung to his iPad. The two suspects fled the scene and were later caught by police and arrested.
“It’s so sad that one innocent teen boy was killed over a senseless robbery,” said West Seegmiller, founder of The Seegmiller Law Firm. “The theft of Apple iPads and other Apple devices has become so widespread these days that police are referring to the robberies as “Apple picking.”
