The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A 23-year-old Groesbeck man was arraigned Saturdayon one count of aggravated robbery and two counts of kidnapping after police say he held a woman at gunpoint, taping up her and her granddaughter and robbing their house.

        A Hamilton County Municipal Court judge set bond for Eddie Leary of Groesbeck at $300,000 for the three first-degree felony offenses.

        A second suspect remains at large.

        District 5 police said Mr. Leary entered a residence in the 5100 block of Colerain Avenue Friday between 11:10 and 11:25 p.m.

        The owner eventually broke loose and escaped, police said. Mr. Leary was apprehended about an hour later in a wooded area behind the residence, and was identified by the owner. It is unknown whether the victims knew the suspect.
