Man accused of domestic violence, abduction

Terron Groves

Terron Groves

ELYRIA — A man is accused of beating his ex-girlfriend and then kidnapping a man to escape around 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The incident occurred in the parking lot of the Eagles Club, 1255 Lowell St., according to a police report. Amanda Klein said she pulled into the lot to meet her parents for dinner and was confronted by Terron Groves, whom Klein said she broke up with three weeks ago after dating since 2002.

Klein, who police said had a bloody right ear, said Groves pounded on the front windshield of her car until it started to crack then punched her in the ear when she got out of the car. Klein said Groves punched Jared Hessler who came out of the club to protect her. Hessler said he didn’t want to press charges.

Groves is then accused of abducting Brett McCall who had just driven into the parking lot. McCall said Groves told him he had a weapon, got into the passenger seat of McCall’s car and ordered him to drive away. Police said they stopped the car on Lowell Street and arrested Groves and charged him with abduction, domestic violence and criminal damaging.

Groves, 34, of the 100 block of Furnace Street, has an extensive criminal history including convictions for aggravated robbery, negligent assault and cocaine trafficking. Groves was being held without bond Wednesday at the Lorain County Jail.

    With such a “extensive” criminal history why is he not serving a long time in prison. Are the judges waiting on him to commit murder before they give him more than a slap on the wrist?

    Why didn’t she start her car and either try to escape or run him over instead of trying to exit the vehicle with him pounding on the windshield?

    • Chan

      I was thinking the same thing. Most people also have cellphones, the police should have been called immediately. Sad to say but I’m glad it happened there and he was caught because the outcome would probably be a lot different had he showed up at her home. Lets just now hope that the judge and prosecutors do their job and lock him up for a very long time.

      • luvmytoaster

        Agreed.

  • Bill

    Why would Jarred Hessler after getting punched in the face not press charges. Pile the charges up on this POS.

    • HankKwah

      Care to bet Jarred was threatened with something if he did press charges?

      • Bill

        Ahhhh yeah….no never mind. That would probably be a losing bet. Good point. But that makes Jarred a …………..

        • HankKwah

          Yea, don’t go there.

  • Collette Johanssen

    We should be more cautious to this. And as much as possible let’s prioritize our safety, be more alert and responsible for us to avoid incidents like this that would lead horror into ourselves. My friend told me to grab this smart phone app to protect my self anytime and anywhere. They can locate me quickly every time I’ll be placed in trouble. I could ask help quickly every time I need help from my family or 911. Here check this link http://safekidzone.com/?a_aid=52f12fafd5de8

    John you speak the truth. Like the man in my profile picture once said. “You can’t handle the truth”. People can’t handle the truth. They do nothing to change it. Then call you racist for putting the Truth out there.

    Oh and on these comment threads. Only white people are racist. But that’s only because most people think that only white people can be racist. Most people have no idea what reverse racism is.

  • Chan

    No it makes you a racist when you only have a thought when it comes to a person of color being arrested and not your own people. It makes you a racist when the only thought you have is speaking of how the US population is made up of people of color and the crime ratio associated with it. Mr. Demirjian, how many jews did your name sake murder?

  • Bill Love

    nope doesn’t mean you are a racist but a ignorant person who would group one persons action against a whole race of people

  • Bill Love

    what truth that’s he can take ones actions and hold against a group of people.

  • Bob

    He is quoting actually statistics. That’s the truth part.

    Plus is the man that committed the crime not African-American??

    Oh wait, is it that Mr Demirjian wasn’t politically correct and use the word Black??

  • Triston Henderson

    A long time? HA! He’s already back on the streets.

  • john baughman

    Um, Paul, Mark didn’t call him a murderer. (see above) “Are the judges waiting on him to commit murder before they give him more than a slap on the wrist?” The operative words are “Are the judges waiting on him to commit murder .”

  • 2Cents

    I am curious, exactly how many “Hundreds of Millions” are we talking here?

  • Joe Smith

    Can you name any of the people who took this land that are alive today?….What? No?
    Then nobody here took ANYTHING from YOU.
    And many a black man was sold to the whites by black men

  • Joe Smith

    You might have to type slower for him.

  • paul

    Are they waiting for him to commit murder? He is acting as if he knows the guy assuming he is capable of murder which he is not. I have known him since he was in diapers he is not a violent person. When love and emotion is involved people tend to do things out of character. Yet here you lepers are trying to assume the man is a possible murderer and you dont even know him. Like I dont know why you knuckle dragging cave dwelling troglodyte leper monkey’s say that. Joe I am no idiot. Try again leprechaun.

  • Joe Smith

    Are you thinking of John Demjanjuk?

  • paul

    Black men sold by black men lmmfao you lepers are so stupid. Listen we so called African Americans are NOT of African descent. The Africans are descendants of Noah son Ham. We are descendants of Noah son Shem. The Hamites sold the Shemites into slavery. We are not even the same people. One nation sold another into slavery so stfu leper you have no idea wtf you are talking about

  • Joe Smith

    What land was taken from YOU specifically? Oh, none, then you need to drop the “us”, just another big mouth looking for a reason to blame his failures on.

  • Chan

    No I’m thinking that anyone with the name Demirjian has some ties to Nazi war activities.
