Ohio’s Robbi Robinson Jr accused of setting fire to his dad’s girlfriend: report
According to a report, a 23-year-old man has been accused of severely beating his father’s girlfriend before setting her on fire at her home in Ohio on Thursday.
Robbi Robinson Jr. has been charged by Fairfield Township Police with aggravated arson and aggravated assault in connection with the heinous attack.
Disturbing police body camera footage obtained by WLWT shows the burned woman begging for help and gasping for air.
“I can not breath! My inhaler is in the house … I can’t breathe, it knocked out my teeth,” the 50-year-old, who is not named, can be heard pleading desperately.
The woman, who is dating Robinson’s father, told officers the young man hit her before dousing her with petrol and throwing a flame at her.
She jumped out of the second floor window to escape.
The woman was airlifted to hospital with second-degree burns on half her body and placed in a coma.
In the recordings, Robinson can be heard repeatedly protesting his innocence and shocked that his father’s girlfriend was hurt so badly.
“I do not know what happened. “It just took off,” said Robinson, who was wearing a winter jacket despite the temperature that day.
When arresting officers told Robinson that the woman he described as his stepmother jumped into the backyard, he seemed stunned: “Oh, did she?”
Robinson’s neighbor Dennis Williams told the outlet he was the first to call 911 after his frantically barking dogs led him to the seriously injured woman.
“I see one of my neighbors lying on the grass and she looked like she was covered in dust. So I came running and her immediate reaction was, ‘He set me on fire,'” Williams said.
Robinson’s motives for the gruesome attack are still unclear.
He is being held in the Butler County Jail on $200,000 bail.
