Robber Nabbed after Asking Victims for Cab Phone Number
Ronald Baker, 19, was surprised to see cops waiting for him when he returned to his house after robbing the house of an elderly Oakwood couple.
Baker broke into the home with an accomplice and used a gun to force the couple and their daughter to lie on the ground. He then locked them in a closet.
He and his accomplice escaped with $15,000 worth of valuables including cash and jewelry. Before he left, he foolishly asked for the number for a cab company.
The victims escaped after he left and immediately called the cops to report the information. Baker was apprehended after a short chase and charged with robbery and burglary. His accomplice is still on the loose.
