Police say a Longview man who lost a game of dice then robbed a woman at gunpoint.

Police arrested 20-year-old Daqwaylon Nelson, of Longview early Saturday on charges of failing to identify a fugitive by giving false information and assault/family violence causing bodily injury as well as a robbery warrant signed by 188th District Judge David Brabham.

After losing in a dice game June 9 on Asaff Street, police said Nelson pointed a pistol at a woman and took about $600 before fleeing in a car. Officers said the woman later identified Nelson as the suspect in a photo lineup.

Nelson remained jailed Wednesday on $154,500 bond.
