Police: Man May Be Responsible For Multiple Robberies Where Victims Told To Drive To ATM
Grandview Heights Police are trying to determine if a suspect arrested in a Columbus robbery is connected to at least two similar crimes in Grandview Heights.
Detectives said the method of operation is the same in the robberies. Victims are robbed at gunpoint and asked to drive to an ATM for more cash.
Suspect Clinton Agbor was arrested Monday night and charged with aggravated robbery after he tried to rob a woman in the 100 block of Richards Rd., according to Columbus Police.
Agbor may be tied to the other robberies in Grandview Heights, according to police.
Earlier on the same night Agbor was arrested, a 21-year-old woman told Grandview Heights Police that she pulled over in the 1000 block of Wyandotte Rd. when a man got into her car, pointed a gun at her and demanded that she drive to an ATM. According to the police report, the suspect left when she said she didn't know where one was.
Around the same time the previous night, a 30 year-old woman said a man approached her in the 1300 block of W. Second Ave., robbed her at gunpoint and then asked to be driven to an ATM.
The victim told police that he left when she said 'No.' Grandview Heights police are trying to determine if same suspect committed the two robberies and if it was Agbor.
Columbus Police said at the time of his arrest, Agbor was out on bond out for numerous indictments for aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, and rape.
Police said he is also a suspect in numerous other recent robberies.
Agbor is scheduled for a preliminary hearing next week.
