Two people are in custody today after a string of robberies in Findlay Wednesday night. The Findlay Police Department reports officers were called to the Tiffin Avenue Kroger location just before 10 p.m. after a man was cut with a knife. The male suspect made off with the victim’s phone and fled the scene. The victim was treated at the scene of the incident.
While searching for the suspect officers were called to the Circle K on Tiffin Avenue about 30 minutes after the first incident. Two men at that location attempted to steal a car from someone at knifepoint. The victim was hit, but the suspects fled on foot. The victim was not injured.
A short time later two suspects were found walking along Fostoria Avenue, just west of the convenience store. 21-year-old Joe Vera III and 14-year-old Isaiah Oliver were identified by witnesses as the attackers at Circle K. Oliver was identified as the attacker at Kroger and had been reported missing earlier in the day.
