2 arrested in robbery near BGSU campus


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

Bowling Green police arrested Thomas Kolleh, 19, on Monday and Thomas James, 21, who was charged Friday. 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 today, according to jail records. Mr. James was arraigned Monday and is being held on a $250,000 bond, according to court records.

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