Police arrested 19-year-old Jamar Dashillas on a warrant charging him with robbery in the Aug. 13 incident. A man and woman playing the popular cellphone game about 3 a.m. told officers they were accosted by a man who demanded their personal property and then battered them. The man suffered a concussion and a broken nose, and the woman had bruises and cuts.
