Armed robbery and assault in Colerain Township

By Dan Wells – bio | email

CINCINNATI (FOX19) – An armed robbery in Colerain Township early Monday morning may be the latest in a string of crimes hitting that quiet community.

Over the past few weeks and even years, several homes on Spring Leaf Lake Drive have been burglarized and this week the criminals have gotten even bolder.

"They took all my credit cards my social security card, my identity, everything," said victim Tien Dao.

Dao was beaten in his Spring Leaf Lake Drive garage early Monday morning after getting home from a trip to Hollywood Casino.

Dao says two men snuck-up on him, hit him with a pistol and took his wallet.

"I don't think they followed me from the casino, I think they were waiting for me on the front door," said Dao.

His neighbors say the assault is surprising for this quiet community.

"(It's a) small neighborhood there is only three streets to it, so everybody waives at each other and gets along, to hear something like that happen blows me away," said Dave Sublett.

Others say this type brutality maybe new and disturbing but trouble with crime isn't new.

"We have had a couple of break-in previously this year," said Jim Williams.

Jim Williams and his son say they've tried to protect themselves with motion lights even a security systems but crime keeps coming. 

"Basically what they were after.they thought... they thought they were involved with drugs and trying to grab what they can and leave immediately," said Williams.

The suspects are described as 6 feet tall black men both wearing all black clothing and face masks. If you know anything call CRIME STOPPERS at 513-352-3040.
