A Cuyahoga County grand jury indicted Dalontay R. Edmond-Geiger Sr., 31, on felony counts of attempted murder, felonious assault, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and having weapons while under disability.
“I have seen a lot of truly terrible cases over the years, and this one is one of the most horrific I’ve seen,” county Prosecutor Michael O’Malley is quoted in a news release. “Thankfully, law enforcement found her alive, and I am praying for her recovery.”
The attack happened earlier this month, according to the indictment.
That day, Edmond-Geiger drove the 60-year-old woman to his home near West 97th Street and Henley Court in Cleveland, according to the release. There, he assaulted her, stabbed her in the arm, zip-tied her hands and tortured her.
Edmond-Geiger was carrying an AK-47 rifle, despite having been barred from carrying firearms after his 2013 robbery conviction in Allen County, according to the indictment.
Police conducting a welfare check at the man’s residence found the woman inside a small plastic container on the porch, “moaning in pain,” according to the release. She was treated at a hospital.
Edmond-Geiger was arrested at the home. He’s due for arraignment the morning of Monday, May 15.
