“Cassell stated that he was choked until he lost consciousness. (He) was unconscious for several minutes, and when he awoke, all of the subjects were gone,” [Elyria police Capt. Chris] Costantino stated.
His wallet was stolen, as was a personal handgun, which was later recovered by detectives.
Investigators conducted interviews and soon charged Dominique Mincy, 27, and Jordan Marquez, 21, with robbery for the incident. The third alleged robber remains at large.
