AUSTINTOWN

Township police are preparing a case against a 26-year-old suspect, currently jailed in Columbus, after he reportedly robbed a woman at Huntington Bank on Aug. 5.

The case will be presented Thursday to a Mahoning County grand jury.

The suspect, Davis W. Cochran, 26, of Columbus, will face charges of aggravated robbery after he allegedly ran up to a woman in the parking lot of the bank on Raccoon Road and fought with her over the money bag in her hand, township police said.

The bag did not have any money in it, just a check. The woman attempted to chase Cochran after he retrieved the bag, but then he showed her he had a gun so she stopped, police said.

Cochran was caught in Columbus two days later after he was shot by police while he attempted to commit the same robbery outside of a Fifth Third Bank.

Columbus police believe he is responsible for three or four other robberies occurring in bank parking lots. After a search warrant was issued for his car, police there found the money bag stolen from the woman outside of Huntington Bank.

Cochran was originally from the Youngstown area and was here for a funeral when he robbed the woman in Austintown, township police said.

Cochran was recovering from a leg wound in the hospital, but is now in Franklin County Jail on $50,000 bond on a charge of aggravated robbery.
