Toledo police still hunting 2 in robbery of West Toledo game store

Police continued to look yesterday for two of three men accused of robbing a video-game store on Monroe Street, then fleeing police in a car that crashed on I-75 at the I-475 split in central Toledo on Monday.

The third man, Damien W. Body of Cleveland, who police believe was driving the speeding car used in the robbery at Game Stop, 5208 Monroe St., was charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, failure to comply with a police order, and carrying concealed weapons.

He was taken to Toledo Hospital. His condition was not available last night.

The other two men fled on foot after the robbers' car crashed into a pickup truck driven by Daniel Roth, 45, who was treated at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center.

At Game Stop, one of two men pointed a silver revolver at a clerk and demanded money, police said. After the clerk handed over an undetermined amount, the robbers ordered him into a restroom in a back room, then stole gaming systems and fled, police said.

The merchandise later was found in their car, along with a revolver in Mr. Body's pants, police said.

Police spotted the fleeing car at Upton and Central avenues and chased it onto eastbound

I-475. It went out of control while rounding a curve within the I-75/I-475 junction at high speed and went down an embankment onto northbound I-75, where it struck two barriers and Mr. Roth's pickup.
