Suspect in Cash Gernon kidnapping allegedly grabbed another toddler in February

The suspect accused of snatching a sleeping Dallas boy who was later found dead allegedly tried to kidnap another child just months earlier — but the girl’s grandfather decided not to press charges at the time, authorities said.

Darriynn Brown, 18, who is charged with kidnapping 4-year-old Cash Gernon earlier this month, is facing counts of burglary of a habitation and injury to an elderly person in the Feb. 8 incident, according to an arrest warrant affidavit obtained by KTVT.

Brown is accused of barging into a man’s home months before Cash was found dead, prompting a homeowner to grab a knife and demand he leave, the affidavit states.

The unidentified man managed to get Brown out, but the teen returned and started kicking a door between the home and its garage, forcing the homeowner to open the door — and Brown allegedly punched him in the head, according to the affidavit.

Brown then allegedly walked into a living room and grabbed the man’s 2-year-old granddaughter as she slept. The teen started to walk away with the toddler, but the man was able rip the child from his grasp, the affidavit states.

The girl’s grandfather told cops the girl was “startled and began crying when she awoke to Brown holding her,” according to the report.
