Dothan police have arrested a teenager in a robbery last week of a Southeast Health employee.

Robert Antonio Parrish, 17, was arrested Tuesday night and charged with first-degree robbery.

Although Parrish is a juvenile, he is being charged as an adult said Dothan police Lt. Doug Magill.

Magill credits Parrish’s arrest to in-depth investigation work and video surveillance provided by Southeast Health.

Police say Parrish allegedly approached a Southeast Health worker when she was making her way from the employee parking lot to the hospital, pulling a gun and taking her purse.

Parrish is at the Houston County Jail on a $60,000 bond.

After the robbery, Southeast Health announced several measures to increase safety at the facility, including:

» Reaching out to the owner of a wooded lot at Haven Drive and Alma Street with an offer to cut back some of the brush and put up fencing at the hospital’s expense.

» Requesting the city of Dothan evaluate the street lighting since it is the city’s right of way.

» Increasing bus routes to the employee parking lot from 5-6:30 a.m., and 8-10 p.m.

Additionally, Southeast Health said Radiology Associates at Alma Street and Fairview Avenue plans to add exterior lighting to its building.
