One Akron mother was arrested after police say she was hostile towards officers following the arrest of her 19-year-old son.
40-year-old Sarina Lawrence is facing charges of obstructing official business and misconduct at an emergency. She was being held at the Summit County Jail. Summit County Sheriff's officials say she was released around 1 a.m. Thursday morning.
Carr is currently being held at the jail.
Police say Lawrence's son, 19-year-old Ragheem Carr and two teen boys, ages 16 and 13 allegedly robbed a 28-year-old man at a bus stop near Lovers Lane and Inman Street around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. The man told police he was robbed of $30, his iPhone, a silver chain, and three bus passes.
Police arrested Carr and the 13-year old. The 16-year old was not taken into custody and now has a warrant for aggravated robbery in connection with the incident.
Akron Police say while Carr was being held inside a police cruiser , his mother tried to approach the vehicle. She was told by officers to move away from the cruiser, prompting her to continue yelling at police and told her son, “Don’t you talk to the [expletive] cops," according to police.
