Police say the younger Sellers abused his girlfriend’s children while babysitting them back in July.

They say he physically used her brothers arms to hit his girlfriend’s 4-year-old daughter and dragged her by her ears across the floor.

The elder Sellers is facing a robbery charge, after police say he used force to take another man’s gold bracelet, on Monday.

They say that confrontation left the victim with an arm injury.

Both Sellers are due in court Friday.
