Show promoter stole Rolex watch, two diamond chains with a combined value of $ 245,000 at gunpoint: Cleveland Heights police blotter

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio – Robbery: Coventry Road

At 6:45 p.m. on October 15, a man reported that he had parked his Audi automobile outside 1846 Coventry Road and was unloading his equipment from the trunk for a show he was promoting at a local venue. In doing so, a white Jeep pulled up beside him and the driver, aged 20-23, moved to the passenger side and opened the passenger door.

The man in the jeep held up a handgun and told the man to give him everything or he would kill him. The man began to remove his diamond necklaces when the suspect told him, “Don’t call the police or I’ll kill you. The suspect then demanded the man’s Rolex watch and cell phone, followed by his earrings. The victim told the suspect that the earrings were fake and that he was allowed to keep them.

After taking the man’s things, the suspect left. A friend of the victim sat nearby in a car, watched what happened, and took a photo of the suspect’s license plate number. Police investigated and learned that the license plate belonged to another vehicle, which had been sold in June. Police contacted the seller and obtained information on the buyer, who is now a suspect. In addition, the robber threw the victim’s cell phone in the victim’s trunk. Police are checking the DNA left on the phone.

The victim estimated the value of the stolen Rolex watch at $ 80,000 and its two diamond chains at $ 90,000 and $ 75,000.

Criminal assault: Bluestone Road

At 12:30 a.m. on October 14, police were called to an apartment following a report of a disturbance between a man and a woman. When officers arrived, they found the back door open and heard a man screaming for help from a bedroom. As officers approached the room, they saw blood on the floor.

The man was stabbed to the side and said he was stabbed by the mother of his child. The woman accused the man of cheating on her and said she found text messages with other women on her phone. The woman was no longer in the apartment. Police found a knife blade in the kitchen sink with dried blood on it. The handle of the knife was found on the ground. The man was treated on the spot and refused to be taken to hospital.

While the police were still in the apartment, they received a call from a man indicating that the woman was outside in a car parked on the street, near the house. Police located the car and arrested the woman for criminal assault and domestic violence. There was also in the car another woman who was with the suspect when she entered the man’s house and returned to the car with blood on her shirt and a cut on her arm.

EMS was called to help the woman, but she yelled derogatory names at the paramedics and refused help.

Unloaded weapon: Ardoon Street

Police determined that the bullet was fired, at an unknown time, through a classroom window and into the ceiling.

Assault: Route des Cèdres

At 12:10 p.m. on October 14, officers were called to the Coventry and Berkshire roads area following a report of an ongoing assault. Officers found the appellant, a 37-year-old female, in her car parked in a lot. There were two small cuts under his right nostril. The woman, who was visibly upset, had blood on a mask she was holding and on her shirt.

The woman explained that she bought food in Wendy’s drive-thru lane, 13246 Cedar Road, but could not move forward out of the lane because the car in front of her was still waiting for food. The woman, whose car was stuck between that car and the one behind her, honked twice. The car behind her backed up, allowing the woman to leave. As she drove past the Honda in front of her, her driver gave her a middle finger. The woman left the parking lot, but noticed the Honda following her.

At a red light on Lee Road, the Honda came to a stop so close to her car that the woman thought she had struck her vehicle. She opened her door to see how close the other car was and saw the man heading for his car. The woman closed her car door and tried to roll up her window, but the man managed to reach her and hit her in the face. The car window popped up, so the man, unable to knock any more, returned to his car and drove west on Cedar Road.

At Wendy’s, police learned that the man in the Honda had paid for his food with a credit card. After learning his identity, the dispatcher called the man and asked him to meet with the police. The man admitted to getting angry because the woman honked at him and he followed her. He said as she walked towards his car, she was yelling at him, so he reached out and slapped her.

The man said he then drove to work and was so overwhelmed with guilt for what he did that he searched online “how to kill yourself without using a gun fire “. Police learned the man had been diagnosed years earlier with depression and anxiety, but had not taken his medication for 10 years, believing he was controlling his anger. Overwhelmed with emotion, the man asked the police to take him to the hospital for an assessment.

The police did so and charged the man with criminal assault.
