Dawonn Ryan Scott, 38 of Rome,  was arrested this week after reports said he placed his finger in the mouth of a woman and then “fish hooked” her, which placed her in fear of receiving violent injury.

He is then accused of stealing her iPhone 14 ProMax.

The incident, which happened at a home on Woodward Street, occurred in front of four children. Reports said that at least one of the children that witnessed the attack belonged to Scott and the victim.

Scott is charged with simple assault, theft by taking, and 3rd degree cruelty to children.
