WACO (April 22, 2013)-A Waco man was sentenced to probation Monday after earlier pleading guilty to a March 2012 robbery at a Walmart store.
Judge Ralph Strother sentenced Patrick Dashawn Lucas to 5-years on probation for the March 25, 2012 robbery at a Waco Walmart store.
Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said officers were sent to the store after employees there reported a man had taken a BB-gun BBs and C-2 propellant from the store.
Employees talked the man into returning to the store, but he then ran from the building and on his way out ran into a 5-year-old boy and knocked him to the ground.
The boy sustained minor injuries in the incident.
Swanton said officers found the Lucas in the area soon after they responded and took him into custody.
