A Mesa man shouldn't be expecting that stereotypical $5 birthday check from his grandmother this year. That's because he allegedly beat her up and stole her wallet last week.
According to the Mesa Police Department, 19-year-old Robert Grazioso was arrested Friday after he punched and kicked his live-in girlfriend.
Shortly after attacking the girlfriend, Grazioso set his sights on his grandma, punching and scratching her before stealing her wallet and taking off.

Grazioso, currently on probation for a different domestic-violence conviction involving his girlfriend, was found later in the day hiding in a closet at one of his friend's apartments.
Cops served a search warrant of the apartment and found the wallet Grazioso stole from his grandmother.
He was arrested on charges of suspicion of strong-armed robbery, aggravated domestic violence, and domestic violence assault.
