A Toledo man was arrested Friday and charged with theft of a firearm and aggravated robbery stemming from separate incidents.
Theodore A. Walker, Jr., 27, of 1823 W. Bancroft St. is accused of stealing a 40-caliber semiautomatic pistol from a vehicle parked near Monroe Street and Auburn Avenue on June 29.
According to court records, Mr. Walker was positively identified by the victim, who knew him from the neighborhood, from a surveillance video taken at a nearby gas station that showed someone reaching through an open window into the vehicle to take the gun.
Mr. Walker is also charged with an aggravated robbery July 3 on Gasser Street.
According to court records, the victim, Timothy Hill, suffered facial fractures when he was pistol-whipped with a handgun and also was robbed of $1,075 in cash.
Mr. Walker is to be arraigned on the charges Monday in Toledo Municipal Court.
Mr. Walker had been shot twice during a separate incident hours before the gun theft June 29. He told police he was inside a Central Avenue bar about 2 a.m. when he got into a quarrel with a man who pulled out a 9mm handgun and began shooting. The suspect then chased Mr. Walker out of the bar and continued firing at him, police said.
Mr. Walker later that day went to Toledo Hospital, where he was treated for a gunshot wound in the right arm and a graze wound to the side of his head, according to the report.
