On August 13 officers were sent to the 1200 block of Ross Avenue after a 16-year-old boy reported that a man had threatened him with a handgun Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

Police learned a similar incident had happened the day before when the teenager's two younger siblings, ages 11, and 7, told their mother a man had pointed a gun at them.

Robinson was arrested Wednesday and was booked into jail early Thursday.
