An Akron man has been found guilty of two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of aggravated burglary for a crime committed last year where a lunchbox and purse were stolen at gun point.

According to Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh, Terrell Nurse, 20, of Moon Drive in Akron, was found guilty of a September 26, 2011 robbery where he and three men contacted an acquaintance and went to that person’s house under false pretenses.

Prosecutors say that upon entering the home, one of Nurse’s accomplices first pointed a gun at a male resident, then a female resident, all while demanding money.

Nurse and his accomplices ransacked the house, and eventually ended up stealing the woman’s purse and the lunchbox of her six-year-old son. The young boy was in the home at the time of the crime.

After the robbers left the home, the victims contacted police and immediately identified Nurse.

Nurse is scheduled to be sentenced for his crimes by Judge Tom Parker on February 28. Nurse faces at least six years in prison.
