Cincinnati Police say the man responsible for using a stolen credit card in Hyde Park has turned himself in.

Aug. 26 surveillance images show a man, identified by police as William Chappell, purchasing beer and fuel at a gas station near Erie and Marburg avenues. Crime Stoppers initially claimed the man robbed and assaulted a victim at gunpoint before using the victim's stolen credit card at a nearby gas station.

On Thursday, Chappell turned himself in after seeing the surveillance images on the news. After his interview with detectives, officials determined Chappell is not a suspect in the armed robbery, said Police Specialist Lesa Smith. 

"Although Mr. Chappell admits to being the subject on video using the stolen credit card without the card holder’s permission ... he is NOT the suspect in the actual robbery," Smith said in an email release.

It is not clear how the stolen credit card ended up in Chappell’s possession, police said. He is currently not facing charges.

The robbery and misuse of a credit card remains under investigation, Smith said. 

If you have any information concerning the assault or robber, please contact Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
