A Toledo man was robbed of his cash, earrings, and shoes, but refused to give up his gold teeth, according to a police report.
Melvin James, 18, told police he was at a carryout, 15 W. Bancroft St., at 4:45 p.m. Saturday when he was approached by two men who had guns.
“Don't move,” one of the suspects said. “Give me everything you got.”
The victim told police he froze and let the suspects rifle through his pockets. The suspects then went into the victim's vehicle and took his earrings and Nike Air Force 1 tennis shoes.
One of the suspects then demanded the victim's gold teeth.
“Give me your teeth. I'm about to bust you if you don't,” the suspect reportedly said.
The victim told the man he would indeed have to “bust him” because he would not give up the teeth.
The suspects then fled.
The first suspect is described by police as black, 5 feet, 8 inches tall, 130 pounds, with black hair worn in short dreadlocks. He was last seen wearing an all-black outfit with a black “scully.” (What's a scully?) He has tattoos under each eye and sports a goatee. He is in his 20s.
The second suspect is described by police as black, 5 feet, 8 inches tall, 160 pounds, with clean-cut black hair. He was also wearing an all-black outfit. He also appeared to be in his 20s and possibly somewhat older than the first suspect.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
