BARBERTON, Ohio — A Summit County jury has found a bar owner guilty of kidnapping, felonious assault, and abduction.
According to the Summity County Prosecutor’s Office, 42-year-old Todd Cleavenger, who owns the Garage Bar, went to a patron’s home in the early morning hours of January 1 and assaulted her.
He then tried to keep her from leaving, but she was eventually able to escape by climbing out of a window and running to a neighbor’s house for help.
The victim was seriously hurt and broke her nose.
Cleavenger will be sentenced on August 1.
