Gym Trouble: Thefts and Aggravated Menacing

This week brings us several incidents at Westlake gyms.

An Elyria man’s watch and wallet were taken from his locked locker at Red Fitness on Columbia Road on Aug. 8 between 11:10 a.m. and 12:05 p.m. His credit cards were cancelled before they could be illicitly used.

Other patrons reported suspicious behavior by the following suspect: Hispanic male 5'6" tall about 200 lbs., stocky build wearing a blue ball cap, bald or very short hair, wearing dark clothing and a backpack. This suspect hung around the locker room for approximately 30 minutes and never entered the workout area.

Also in the blotters: Musclehead on a rage

A 20-year-old Rocky River man was on his muscle the morning of Aug. 6. He was arrested after he barged in without paying and then threatened other patrons of LA Fitness with bodily harm. He had also been removed from another Westshore gym the previous day; the Westlake incident earned him two counts of Aggravated Menacing and one count of Trespass from the Westlake Police Department.
