Cleveland man charged in carjacking in West Boulevard neighborhood
A Cleveland man was jailed on a charge of aggravated robbery for a carjacking in the city's West Boulevard neighborhood. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The case of a man accused of carjacking a woman in Cleveland's West Boulevard neighborhood is headed to a Cuyahoga County grand jury. William Cannon Jr., 18, of Cleveland, is charged with aggravated robbery in a Nov. 9 incident on West 95th Street near Lorain Avenue. A judge set bond at $50,000 during Cannon's arraignment Friday in Cleveland Municipal Court. Detectives arrested Cannon on Wednesday, one week after a 52-year-old woman reported the carjacking. A man approached the woman's 2015 Kia Sportage after she pulled into her driveway about 4 p.m. He told the woman he had a gun and threatened to "blow her head off," according to a police report. The man demanded the woman hand over her car keys. He also took her phone before driving off north on West 95th Street to Lorain Avenue, the report says. A witness spotted a station wagon pull up to the area just prior to the carjacking. She watched as the man exited the passenger seat and ran up to the victim. When the stolen Kia drove off, the station wagon followed, the report says. The victim later picked Cannon out of a photo line-up, saying she was 80 percent certain he was the carjacker, according to court records.
