WPD makes arrests in attempted robbery case


The Westfield Police Dept. has made two arrests in connection to an attempted robbery.

Just after 9 p.m. Sept. 7, officers responded to the 200 block of Dena Drive to the report of an attempted robbery. When officers arrived to the scene they were told by an adult male that when he left his apartment he saw a white male getting out of his relative’s vehicle.

According to police reports, when he asked the man why he was driving the car, the suspect grabbed him by his collar and pulled out a black semi-automatic handgun. The suspect then placed the gun to the victim’s head and demanded all of his money as another white male was standing nearby who was also holding a handgun.

Police officials said when the victim yelled for help, the two suspects fled on foot without having stolen anything and without harming him. It was later discovered that a small amount of coins were stolen from the vehicle.

WPD detectives served arrest and search warrants on Sept. 8 and arrested Clinton Bryan Davis, 20, and Dylan E. McConnell, 19. Both have been charged with robbery and theft. A pre-trial date has been scheduled in Hamilton County Circuit Court for Nov. 11 with a jury trial to begin on Dec. 17.

Davis and McConnell are being held at the Hamilton County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
