Arrests In Fatal iPad Theft
( Las Vegas, NV ) Two men have been arrested in the killing of a teenage boy over an iPad in Las Vegas.
Las Vegas Metro Police announced Sunday that 18-year-old Jacob Dismont (left side of photo) and 21-year-old Michael Solid (right side of photo) were booked into the Clark County jail on charges on open murder, robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.
According to investigators, 15-year-old Marcos Arenas was walking down a street with the iPad on Thursday when a vehicle stopped and one of the suspects got out and tried to steal the device from him.
Dismont is accused of trying to wrest the tablet away from Arenas and dragging him toward the SUV when the youth wouldn’t let go of the iPad. After Dismont re-entered the vehicle and Solid drove away, the teen was dragged until he fell. The vehicle ran over Marcos and he died.
