Crimes at Mexican restaurant, cemetery, car dealership land man in jail

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Cincinnati man is in jail facing multiple charges after pulling a weapon on restaurant employees, crashing a car into a cemetery, and trying to steal a car from a Hyundai dealership.

Aaron Skurow, 34, is locked up on charges of aggravated menacing, inducing panic, reckless operation, and robbery after multiple incidents Tuesday morning. The police reports generated from the incidents span two police departments.

Skurow is believed to have been captured on surveillance video entering the El Vaquero Mexican restaurant on Cornell Road on Tuesday around 10:30 a.m., according to police. They say he may have been looking for an employee that did not work at that location. In the video, Skurow appears to raise a bottle at one of the employees before exiting the establishment. Once in the parking lot, he turns around and re-enters the store with a weapon in his hands. An arrest report indicates the weapon, which looked like a gun, contained pepper spray.

Skurow left the restaurant without further incident.

Police later found the car Skurow was believed to be driving crashed into the fence at Gates of Heaven Cemetery but no driver was present.

Montgomery police were later dispatched to a Hyundai dealership in the 11000 block of Montgomery Road. They say Skurow walked into the dealership and asked for the keys to the fastest car, but employees refused -- a similar request was also denied at the nearby Acura dealership.

Police said he returned to the Hyundai dealership, where he kicked an employee in the chest before he was restrained by management.

Skurow is due back in court Aug. 13.
