YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Police say a man who was reported missing by his family robbed the Cashland in Youngstown on Thursday morning.
Keyshawn Blalock, 19, was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery.
Earlier this week, his family told police that they hadn’t heard from Blalock since February 5. They were worried because they said he was without the medication that he needs daily.
In a news release sent to the media on Wednesday, police said Blalock is mentally-handicapped and developmentally-delayed.
Now, police say Blalock walked into Cashland just before 11 a.m. Thursday, showing a firearm and demanding cash. He then took off running with some cash, but police caught up with him a short time later.
According to a police report, after the robbery, the suspect met up with two other men in a nearby parking lot. The report doesn’t mention if the men were considered suspects, but no one else has been arrested in connection to the crime.
No one was hurt in the incident.
