2 arrested for Bowling Green robbery


BOWLING GREEN -- Two suspects have been arrested for a robbery last week near the campus of Bowling Green State University.

Bowling Green police arrested Thomas Kolleh, 19, today, and Thomas James, 21, was arraigned today. Both are BGSU students and face aggravated robbery charges, police said. Authorities said the robbery was drug related, and that the suspects fled the scene with marijuana and an undisclosed amount of cash.

The Oct. 8 robbery of two men in their apartment by three suspects with a handgun, took place in the 500 block of North Enterprise Street. It prompted the university to send out alerts by text and email notifying students, faculty, and staff of the incident.

Mr. Kolleh was being held at the Wood County jail with a court date scheduled for Tuesday, according to jail records. Mr. James was arraigned today and is being held on a $250,000 bond, according to court records.

Timothy Sewell, Jr., 21, also a university student, was charged with trafficking in drugs. His next appearance in Bowling Green Municipal Court is scheduled for Wednesday. His involvement in the incident was unclear.
