Man dies of injuries from apparent break-in

Both wrists cut by window glass

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A Springfield Township man died early Wednesday after he severely cut his wrists on window glass while appar ently trying to enter an Evanston home, police said.

        Police responded to the 3300 block of Montgomery Road about 4:45 a.m. after a report of a person shot. When officers arrived, they found a man “bleeding profusely” from both wrists.

        “The victim's wrists are slit all the way open,” one officer reported.

        The man, later identified by police as Gerald Gholston, 29, of the 8300 block of Mayfair Street, was taken to University Hospital, where he was pro nounced dead about 5:30 a.m.

        Police followed a 11/2-block trail of blood from Montgomery Road to a house in the 1700 block of Hewitt Avenue. In the rear of the house they found a broken window.

        An officer on the scene reported there was “a lot of blood inside the house.”

        Initial police reports said the man apparently cut his wrists on broken window glass while trying to enterthe house and then fled when confronted by the homeowner. Police investigators are still trying to determine exactly what happened.

        The Cincinnati Police Divi sion's homicide unit is investigating the death.

        Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 352-3040 or the homicide unit at 352-4542. Callers may remain anonymous and could be compensated for information provided.
