Denison Police said a teenager was arrested and charged for robbery Sunday night after he allegedly assaulted his friend and took his belongings.


Lt. Mike Eppler said the incident occurred at approximately 10:30 p.m. at Jones Park in the 1200 block of West Shepherd Street. Eppler said the victim and the 18-year-old, alleged assailant were riding together in a car with three other friends before they stopped at the park and the reported attack occurred.


“He assaulted another guy,” Eppler said of the suspect. “He punched him in the face and took his wallet and cellphone and left.”


Eppler said the victim was not seriously injured and notified police a short time later to report the matter.


“Officers located the suspect a little bit later during the investigation,” Eppler said. “They arrested him and also recovered the property.”
