Surveillance video captured a man punching an 8-year-old boy and running off with his iPad.
It occurred on Thursday just after 4:30 p.m. near 2628 Nicollet Avenue South in Minneapolis.
The surveillance video shows the man, identified as Aaron Stillday, dropping the tablet after punching the boy. The 8-year-old fell to the ground. Seconds after falling, he got up and ran back into the day care he was leaving to get help.
Mohammad Armeli witnessed the attack and tried to help.
“You just don’t hit a child. You don’t hit a child,” he told KARE 11 news. “He punched a child so hard his nose might have broken. There was blood all over his face.”
“I kept running after him. He tried to get into the apartment buildings. He tried to throw stuff away from himself,” Armeli said. “I stopped him right here and said ‘Hey, where are you going? He said ‘I didn’t do anything. I didn’t’ do anything.’”
Stillday has been charged with first-degree aggravated robbery.
