LIMA — The grand jury indicted a man Thursday on numerous felony charges connected to two robberies at a local pharmacy including one which he allegedly struck a 67-year-old woman in the head with a hammer.
Keith Maidon, 46, of 717 S. Atlantic Ave., was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, two counts of felonious assault and one count of robbery.
Maidon was arrested Dec. 4 in connection with the two robberies at the CVS Pharmacy at 900 Bellefontaine Ave. The second robbery was a day before his arrest when he allegedly approached the 67-year-old woman in the parking lot and tried to steal her purse.
The robber struck her in the head several times with a hammer but was unable to get her purse and ran from the area.
Employees from CVS intervened and stopped the attack, police reported.
The other robbery happened Nov. 7 when a man entered the pharmacy and demanded money. The robber said he had a gun and obtained an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing the business, police reported.
