Orange county police arrest men who stole mother’s bag, child’s tablet at gunpoint

Orange County officers arrested two men just hours after they allegedly robbed a mother, her young son, and her infant of their belongings at gunpoint.

According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, on Tuesday, August 9, a woman with her infant and young child was standing by a business on South Orange Blossom Trail when they were approached by 18-year-old Joshua Davila.

Davila approached the mother and, at gun point, robbed her of her belongings, including her child’s backpack and tablet.

Video on the scene shows the moment that Davila takes the items from the mother, before leaving in a vehicle being driven by 22-year-old Corahn Myrie.
