CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A Hamilton County judge set a bond amount of $165,000 for a suspect who is allegedly connected with throwing a railroad spike from an overpass and onto I-75 in Bond Hill Saturday.

According to court documents, Robert Stevens, 25, was arrested after several victims stated to police that he threw the spike causing damage to their cars and creating a serious risk to the drivers.

Police received more than 30 calls from witnesses. Stevens is accused of hitting more than 10 vehicles.

“It’s infuriating,” said Kyle Anderson. “I don’t know why someone would do something like that.”

Anderson witnessed and filmed the incident.

“It should’ve never happened,” he said Monday. “I think it’s a cowardly thing for him to be doing.”

According to police, at least one of the victims left their vehicle and chased Stevens into a wooded area. Anderson claims that was him.

It was initially reported that police were searching for a suspect they said was throwing rocks off of a highway overpass.

According to officials, nobody was seriously hurt in the incident.

Court documents say that Stevens allegedly had meth in his pocket and stole alcohol.

According to jail records, Stevens is facing 10 counts of vandalism, one count of possession of drugs, and one count of theft.

Stevens is held at the Hamilton County Justice Center.

“It’s upsetting,” Anderson said. “For somebody to not care and not have value for life, it’s just... disgusting.”
