Two sought in robbery, kidnapping at hospital

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Cincinnati police are looking for two more people in connection with the robbery and kidnapping of a Hamilton man Thursday night in a parking lot at Good Samaritan Hospital.

        Authorities issued a warrant for Robert Lattimore and Toby Palmer, who also goes by the last name of Lattimore. Robert Lattimore, 24, lives at 35 Ehrman Ave. in Avondale. He is described as black, 5-foot-5, 170 pounds with a gold cap on an upper front tooth and a tattoo of bullets on his right arm. Mr. Palmer, 25, lives at 2924 Burnet Ave. in Avondale. He is described as black, 5-foot-5 and 170 pounds.

        Already arrested in connection with the case are Darian Lattimore, 28, of 7130 Lawn Ave. in Norwood and Jaimee McClure, 24, of 926 Chapel Street in Corryville. Darian Lattimore is charged with aggravated robbery and kidnapping. Ms. McClure is charged with receiving stolen property and obstruction of official business.

        Police accuse the three Lattimores of kidnapping Jeffrey Horton as the 26-year-old Hamilton man walked to his car after dropping his wife off at the hospital's maternity ward. Mr. Horton was stuffed into the trunk of his car, forced to take off his clothes and robbed of his wallet and wedding ring.

        Mr. Horton told police he escaped only after a struggle in which he was able to grab one of the men's guns. Mr. Horton then shot one of the men. Police didn't release the name of the injured man, but described the gunshot wound as minor.

       Anyone with information about this crime can call Crime Stoppers at 352-3040. Callers may remain anonymous and receive money for their information.
