On April 22, Miami County Sheriff deputies investigated a robbery which occurred in the 100 block of Garbry Road in Springcreek Township. A 16 year-old male victim reported a black sedan with tinted windows pulled up outside a residence he was visiting. The victim stated the vehicle was driven by a black male and there was also a black male front passenger. The driver exited the vehicle and blocked the victim’s path. At the same time the front seat passenger exited the vehicle with his hand behind his back.
The passenger suspect then asked the victim if he had any money. When the victim told the passenger suspect he did not have any money, the passenger suspect pulled his arm from behind his back and displayed what the victim described as a semi-automatic pistol, according to a press release from the Miami County Sheriff’s Office. The passenger suspect then demanded the victim empty his pockets. As the victim attempted to walk away, the suspect then struck the victim in the face. The victim fell down and both suspects at that point began to strike him in the face multiple times. The male suspects then fled in the vehicle.
