Police Blotter

By Kiana Dean

Robbery at Food and Beverage

Cleveland State University Police responded to a robbery at the Food and Liquor store located on 1900 Euclid Ave. at approximately 9:30 p.m. on April 6. When arriving on the scene, the store clerk explained that a man with beer approached the counter ready to pay. Instead of paying, he went behind the counter and put a gun to the clerk’s stomach, demanding the cash drawer be opened. The store clerk opened the drawer and put $1,500-$2,000 into a store bag, and the man quickly left the scene.
The store clerk described the man as a dark-skinned African American man wearing jeans and an orange hoodie. He was about 6 feet tall, with small eyes, dreadlocks that fell below his ears and little facial hair.
The police also talked with a Cleveland State student who was at the scene when it happened and who saw the man in orange close to the register, and another man standing feet away from him. She began to walk around the store and the man in orange made eye contact, then quickly left the store. When the student went to the register, the store clerk immediately said the store had been robbed.
Police were able to view cameras and found that the man was pacing up and down Euclid Avenue before entering the store. After he left the scene, he went east onto Euclid and west onto Swingos Court.


Vehicle Trespass at the Langston


Cleveland State Police responded to a student who had his car broken into on April 8. The student parked his silver BMW in the Langston Apartments parking lot April 7 at 11 a.m. When returning to the vehicle at 4 p.m. the next day, he found his car with all four doors and the trunk wide open.
One thousand dollars in cash had been taken from the glove compartment, as well as $10 in change from his cup holder. The student said he would not press charges if the suspect can be identified.
The next day the police viewed video footage of the parking lot, but no camera recorded the vicinity where the student had parked.


Car Damage on Chester Avenue

Cleveland State police responded to a car break-in April 11 on Chester Avenue. A non-Cleveland State student parked his vehicle on Chester Avenue at approximately 7 p.m. and locked the doors on his 2017 Ford F150. At 10:20 p.m. he returned to his vehicle to find the rear passenger window broken and the front passenger door unlocked.
The glove compartment and middle console had been rummaged through and left open as well. He noticed $20 in change, a tool bag with three cordless drills, an electric vehicle diagnostics kit, and a $50 deadbolt door lock were missing.
Police are looking at cameras in the Chester area where the truck was parked for information concerning the car damage.

From April 6 to April 28, Cleveland State police reported nine counts of theft, six vehicle trespasses, and four criminal endangering or damaging reports.
