The first gunpoint robbery, according to Mason officials, occurred at 6:05 a.m. The resident of a home in the 7500 block of Somerset Drive in Mason was allegedly leaving for work when a man dressed in black with a ski mask believed to be Jividen displayed a handgun, took her purse, then fled the scene.

Mason police were called to 6943 Raceway Court less than two hours later. The homeowner reported a man in black wearing a ski mask, also believed to be Jividen, was on her porch.

On the same day, Jividen is accused of entering an open, attached garage at 5083 Plantation Court in Mason and, while in possession of a handgun, stealing a backpack from a car. The backpack reportedly contained a woman’s purse and a laptop belonging to Procter and Gamble.

Jividen then reportedly took an Uber from the 5800 block of West Fountain Circle in Mason to the 6000 block of Newtonsville Road in Clermont County. During the ride, police say Jividen pointed a handgun at the driver and stole $143 cash from the driver’s wallet.
