Gross and Henderson have also been identified as the men who allegedly robbed 28-year-old Darrius Summers as he walked to his apartment in the 1800 block of State Street in the early morning hours of Tuesday, police said.

Gross is charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping, identify theft, and fraudulent use of a credit card (for using victim Thurman’s charge card shortly after Tuesday afternoon’s robbery.

What's going on at Green Hills parking garages? A couple of months ago a man was beaten with a baseball bat by this punk Tice. Hope he's OK. Not Tice, give him the chair. But, isn't the garage security personel adequate? There will be so many lawsuits against the mgt. co., so beef up security, install more camers. Do something. These punks prey on people with money, and Green Hills has the cash.
