Grand jury charges Elyria man with robbery, receiving stolen property


ELYRIA – An Elyria man has been indicted on aggravated robbery charges in connection to an alleged robbery in March.

Jamy Mack, 20, of Middle Avenue, faces a count of first-degree felony aggravated robbery, two counts of second-degree felony robbery, a count of third-degree felony robbery and receiving stolen property, according to a Lorain County grand jury indictment released Friday. Four of the five counts also have two attached firearm specifications; the receiving stolen property has one firearm specification.

If convicted, each specification carries a mandatory prison sentence.

Mack was arrested March 22 in the parking lot of 1930 Fowl Road with a 9 mm handgun in his possession. The gun was reported stolen out of Franklin County, police have said.

Police were looking for a man matching Mack’s description after a citizen had stopped the beating of a 43-year-old man, Elyria police have said.

On March 21, before 10:30 p.m., a woman called 911 after observing three men, including one she said was holding a gun. The woman thought the trio’s behavior was suspicious so she called police and began following them in her car.

Once the three were near the intersection of East Broad and Kipling streets near Circle K, the men began punching and kicking a 43-year-old Bell Avenue man, police have said.

The woman slammed on her brakes, starting honking her horn and told the men she was on the phone with the police, according to Elyria police. The men took off running.

The woman gave police a description of the men. Mack was arrested the following day and police were still looking for the other two men.
