Second BGSU football player wanted in home invasion


BOWLING GREEN - An arrest warrant has been issued for a second Bowling Green State University football player believed to have been involved in a June 2 home invasion at a Klotz Road apartment.

Jacob Hardwick, 21, was indicted last week by a Wood County grand jury on charges of robbery and aggravated burglary. Bowling Green Police Lt. Tony Hetrick said officers attempted to serve the warrant on Mr. Hardwick Saturday night at his Bowling Green apartment but found the apartment vacant.

About 10:25 p.m. June 2, three intruders reportedly broke into an apartment at the Enclave II complex wearing masks and carrying what appeared to be handguns. They demanded marijuana from the occupants then proceeded to ransack the apartment.

Mr. Hardwick's former roommate, Orlando Barrow, 19, was arrested the night of the crime and later was indicted on the same charges. He is free on bond.

Assistant Wood County Prosecutor Paul Dobson said a third suspect has been identified but not charged.
