Man Accused of Felonious Assault Doesn't Show Up To Hearing

A 35-year-old from Cleveland accused of beating a Cleveland Heights man with his gun and robbing a couple in their driveway didn't appear for his arraignment in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Monday.

A man accused of striking a Cleveland Heights resident with his gun and robbing a couple at their home didn't show up to court Monday for his arraignment.

Tommie Golphin, 35, of Cleveland, was supposed to appear at 8:30 a.m. in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court. He is charged with aggravated robbery, felonious assault, kidnapping and having weapons under disability after prosecutors say he robbed a couple at their home on Nelaview Road.

He is accused of robbing a husband and wife in their driveway after they came home from the overnight shift Dec. 18. Prosecutors say Golphin attacked the man with his handgun. The wife scared the suspect by pressing her car horn, and the defendant fled on foot. He was later identified through DNA evidence, according to prosecutors.

A warrant was issued on his indictment April 24, according to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office.

Arrests and charges do not indicate conviction.
