A Stow man has been indicted for robbery by a Cuyahoga County grand jury in connection with the July robbery of the Ohio Savings Bank in Solon.
Ralphel A. Penn, 25, of Stow, is currently an inmate at the Summit County Jail on charges connected to bank robberies in Akron and Northfield Village.
On July 6, a man entered the Ohio Savings Bank located at 34206 Aurora Road, Solon, and handed a note to a teller demanding $3,000 in cash, according to Solon Police. No weapon was seen.
The man was given a small amount of $1 bills in a packet and he immediately left the scene, fleeing on foot. He was not caught at the time.
Solon Police detectives learned that a suspect in other robberies fit the same description. That suspect was identified as the Solon robber through photographic and forensic evidence.
