Elyria police investigate pair of gunpoint holdups

ELYRIA — Police continue the investigation for a suspect who allegedly attempted to rob two different people at gunpoint July 13.

Officers first responded to an attempted aggravated robbery complaint at 4:24 a.m. July 13 at Sunshine Car Wash, 330 Prospect St.

Contact was made with the first victim who told officers “he ran home from Sunshine Car Wash after a subject attempted to rob him at gunpoint.” The victim told officers he was washing his car when the subject approached him, saying, “Give me your wallet, or I will blast you.”

There were no items taken from the victim’s vehicle, nor was his wallet stolen.

At 3 p.m., officers made contact with the owner of the business who confirmed there were working surveillance cameras at the time of the incident.

The second attempted aggravated robbery complaint was reported at 8 a.m. July 13, but the victim told officers the incident took place about 1:30 a.m.

The man told officers that he was driving home from a party in Oberlin when he became lost and had to use the bathroom. The man pulled in to Liberty Gas, 824 Middle Ave., but learned there wasn’t a bathroom inside the business. The man made a purchase inside the gas station and when he walked toward his vehicle, a black man approached him and pointed a small chrome revolver advising the victim to “give him all of his money.” The victim handed over his wallet, and the man fled the area on foot.

There were no suspects or witnesses to the incident, but officers did observe security footage from Liberty Gas. The footage supported the statement by the victim, but has no “evidentiary value.”

Both victims described the suspect as being a 6-foot-1, 160- to 180-pound black man in his early 20s wearing a gray/black hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head.

    The next time he decides to rob someone at gunpoint it could be someone you know and love.And if they have no money to give him he becomes angry and suddenly a loud bang as the weapon discharges.Sadly a person falls to the ground from a gunshot wound.It could be you. Concealed carry might save your life that day.That person falling to the ground was the armed robber.

    ‘Both victims described the suspect as being a 6-foot-1, 160- to 180-pound black man in his early 20s wearing a gray/black hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head.’

    Well, that really narrows it down.

  • Scout

    Why all the racial talk about this? A crime was committed with a potentially serious or deadly outcome. This person could have been a ’6-foot-1, 160 to 180 pound whit man in his early 20s wearing a gray/black hood sweatshert with the hood pulled over his head’ and ‘that would still really narrowed it down’. Maybe potential victims out there-regardless of race- should be more aware of their surroundings and not be washing cars at 4:30 a.m. A crime of opportunity is what I’m seeing here.

  • Scout

    Oh and as for Liberty Gas- I wouldn’t go in there at high noon let alone at1:30 in the morning. Hold it until you get home!

  • Devin

    I love how racist thec Chronicle Telegram is. They allow white people to get on here and be as racist as they want. As soon as a so called black person gets on here and puts you white people in your place they block them. Whoever is in charge of this site you are trash and obviously a Edomite devil as well. Cant handle the truth of what God thinks of your nasty race?

  • Devin

    Lames

    • Starryeyes

      I have a serious question…
