Deputy in scuffle at shopping center, suspect arrested

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A 30-year-old Ludlow man was arrested Friday in connection with a robbery at the West Towne Centre Dillard's.

        Christopher Maxwell was charged with assault on a police officer, robbery and resisting arrest in the 6:30 p.m. incident.

        An off-duty sheriff's deputy working at the store at 6290 Glenway Ave. spotted a man putting merchandise in a bag, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. When the deputy attempted to stop the man, he fled with the bag to the parking lot, where another man and a woman were waiting in a car.

        The man threw the merchandise into the car and attempted to crawl through an open window into the car, the sheriff's office said.

        As the car pulled away, the deputy's clothing was snagged and he was dragged about 20 yards.

        The two men struggled, but the deputy was able to subdue the suspect, officials said.

        The car was described as a red or maroon Chevrolet Cavalier with partial Indiana plates of 4629B.

        The officer was not injured, officials said.
