Case Western Reserve University researcher robbed at gunpoint in Little Italy

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A man is accused of robbing a Case Western Reserve University cancer researcher at gunpoint in the parking lot of a Little Italy restaurant.

Tristan Brown, 30, of Cleveland is charged with aggravated robbery. He is not in police custody and a warrant was issued Friday for his arrest.

The robbery happened about 3:15 p.m. Monday in the parking lot of Michelangelo's restaurant on Murray Hill Road.

The 38-year-old woman told police she was in the parking lot when two men walked up to her. One pointed a gun at her and said: "Want your life or your bag?"

The man grabbed the cellphone out of her coat pocket and took her purse that had $100 and credit cards inside, police reports say.

The duo then ran through parking lots and behind a restaurant across the street, according to police.

The woman told police she screamed for help but there was no around, police reports say. She drove to the Wolstein Research Building on Case Western's campus and called campus police.

Campus police, along with University Circle police, Cleveland police, searched the area for the robbers but didn't find them, according to police reports.

Several restaurants in the area told police they would give them surveillance video of the robbery.

The woman about two hours later used her computer to track her phone, which was found at the McDonald's on East 55th Street and Superior Avenue, police reports say.

Brown is free on bond in two separate fentanyl possession cases stemming from arrests in July and August of 2016. He pleaded not guilty in both of those cases.

He also spent three years in prison for an armed robbery in 2005.

He has four other felony convictions for drug trafficking, drug possession and unauthorized use of a car.
