Suspects Sought In South Cleveland Robbery And Assault

Monday, March 14, 2016

Sheriff Eric Watson and the Criminal Investigations Division of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office are seeking the public’s assistance identifying two men involved in an aggravated robbery that occurred on March 1, at approximately 1 a.m.

Sheriff Watson has posted up to a $500 reward for information that leads to the arrest of the suspects who robbed an individual as he was leaving his home on 27th Street near Blackburn Road to go to work.

The victim reported he was attacked from behind as he was getting into his vehicle. Because it was dark, he was only able to give a description of one of the suspects. He told investigators he is a white male, between 5’ 10” and 6’ tall, and weighs approximately 200 pounds. No description was available on the second suspect other than he is also a white male.

The victim was pulled backward to the ground and kicked once during a struggle with one of the suspects, which caused injuries that required treatment at Tennova Hospital. 

The two men stole the victim’s wallet containing various forms of identification and a small amount of cash before fleeing on foot. 

The sheriff’s office hopes someone knows the identity of these suspects and will come forward with that information. One can reach the Criminal Investigations Division by calling 423 728-7336.

Roy Exum: Oh Yes, I Loved West

One of my most beloved friends died early Saturday morning at the age of 67. Then again, West Oehmig’s only brother – King – died a couple of years ago at 63 so it wasn’t by happenstance I remembered Abraham Lincoln’s famous line: “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years.” Here are two brothers who lived larger than any other pair I can ...
