Mother Robbed at Gunpoint in Driveway
CLEVELAND — Your home is supposed to be safe, but a Cleveland woman found the opposite to be true.
Cleveland Police say she and her two year old son were held at gunpoint, and then their home was ransacked.
The violence happened in the 1500 block of Clermont Road around 11:00 p.m. on Friday.
Cleveland police tell Fox 8 there are five suspects in the case. They are still on the loose, but face many charges including aggravated robbery and kidnapping.
“It made me feel real uncomfortable I couldn’t sleep last night,” said Jacinda Wilson, who lives across the street.
Police say Antraneca Grayer, 25, was pulling into her driveway, with her two year old son. As she exited her vehicle, officials say a man, dressed in black, approached her at gunpoint and demanded money.
“It’s like a tornado coming, it’s unexpected, you don’t see it coming,” said Chris Hodges, who lives nearby.
Officials tell Fox 8 Grayer was led back into her home at gunpoint. During this time, one of the suspects took her son away from her as well.
Then the suspects ransacked the home.
“They’ll be caught, they don’t know how to keep their mouths shut–that’s the bad thing about criminals, they are dumb,” Hodges said. “And yes I said it, dumb,” he continued.
During the incident, Joshua Tucker, 23, arrived. Neighbors explained he also lives at the home. After demanding money from Tucker, police say he was pistol whipped and shot in the buttocks. He was also grazed by a bullet in the back of his head.
Tucker’s wounds are thought to be non-life threatening.
Shortly after the incident, the two year old boy was found in his mother’s vehicle unharmed.
The suspects are facing aggravated robbery, kidnapping, and burglary charges, not to mention felonious assault.
Police say the suspects were wearing all black clothing and had bandanas over their faces.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Cleveland Police Department’s Fifth District Detective Bureau at 216-623-5518.
