CRESCENT CITY - A Crescent City man is out on bail after he allegedly threatened and robbed the mother of his child. Police reported an altercation last Friday involving the victim and 37-year old Dodson. The victim claims Dodson came to the business she owns, took her cell phone and money, then removed a handgun from under the desk. Dodson stated he was going to kill the victim and then pointed the gun to his own head. At that time the victim fled the business. Officials say, Dodson turned himself in on Saturday, posted his own bail and was released.
