A Rhode Island man who is accused of attacking his niece because he was upset over how she was playing the game "Pokemon Go" has surrendered to police.

Cranston police say Kalada Fubara turned himself in Tuesday. He's expected to be arraigned on charges of felony domestic assault and disorderly conduct Tuesday afternoon. Fubara said he had no comment when reached by phone.

Police say the 44-year-old Fubara met his 22-year-old niece at a virtual room called a Pokemon gym and became upset when she entered the gym because he didn't want her to.

Police say Fubara became infuriated when his niece told him it was just a game. They say he punched her, pulled her out of the car, pulled out her hair and kicked her in the ribs.
