Man, woman robbed at gunpoint while walking home

Grandview Heights police arrested two Columbus men Oct. 14 after they allegedly robbed a man and woman at gunpoint.

Anthony A. Davie, 43, and Reginald Q. Harmon, 25, both of Tuscarawas Court, were charged with felony counts of aggravated robbery, kidnapping and having weapons under disability.

Officers responded about 10:30 p.m. Oct. 14 to the 900 block of Northwest Boulevard on a robbery report.

Two Columbus residents told police they were walking home from the grocery store when two men approached them with guns, according to police. They gave police a description of the suspects and of the car they were driving.

The vehicle was found in front of the registered owner's residence on Tuscarawas Court and the suspects were identified and arrested. They were taken to the Franklin County jail.

Police obtained a search warrant for Davie and Harmon's home, and items that were stolen from the victims, including a watch, makeup bag, cellphone, prescription medicine, book bag, disposable camera, wallets and a purse, were recovered.

The kidnapping charge was filed in this incident because the victims were unable to freely leave as they were being held at gunpoint, Grandview police officer Ryan Starns said.
