Man jailed after throwing fuel in East Toledo gas station incident

Wearing a black tactical vest and carrying an empty holster and handcuffs, a Toledo man went into an east side gas station on Saturday and screamed to employees and customers that he was carrying a gun.

Robert Keesey, 64, of 2703 Densmore Dr., is charged with inducing panic and two counts of assault. He was arraigned today in Toledo Municipal Court and pleaded not guilty to all three charges. Mr. Keesey is being held in the Lucas County jail in lieu of $7,500 bond.

While Mr. Keesey was in Sunoco, 615 Oak St., Saturday night, he threw gasoline on Steven Wilson, 52, and Michael Singh, 41, according to court records.

Court records allege that the suspect also beat Mr. Wilson.

No additional court dates have been scheduled.
