Prosecutors charged a Gary man with six felony counts Wednesday alleging the man sicced his pit bulls on a woman after she refused to have sex.

The victim told police she had gone Jan. 29 to the home of 30-year-old Robert Knox in the 3800 block of Adams Street to buy and share crack cocaine, court records state.

After smoking the drugs, the victim told police Knox became angry when he demanded sex but she told him sex was not part of the agreement.

The woman told police she ran up the stairs and the two pit bulls attacked her. With the dogs biting and tearing at her, Knox removed the dogs, then let them go to attack her again, the woman said.

Knox finally pulled away the dogs, gave the woman a sweatshirt and told her to hurry up and leave, court records state.

The woman suffered a severe head laceration requiring more than a dozen staples to close and wounds to her left arm, right leg and other parts of her body that will result in serious permanent disfigurement.

Knox was charged with two counts of criminal deviate conduct, two counts of criminal confinement and one count each of battery and aggravated battery.

Gary teen being questioned in World of Skates shooting

Police chief credits public's help in identifying person of interest.

By Lu Ann Franklin - Times Correspondent | Posted: Thursday, March 11, 2010 12:03 pm

GARY | A 17-year-old Gary resident is being questioned as a person of interest in Friday's shooting of eight teenagers outside World of Skates near Fifth Avenue and Clark Road, Gary police officials announced at a Thursday morning news conference at Gary City Hall.

The teen is being held at Lake County Jail in Crown Point on an unrelated felony weapons charge.

Police Chief Gary Carter said the suspect was identified by community members who came forward with information. He did not go into specifics. Because of that, police were able to locate a rifle they believe may be linked to the crimes. Carter would not say Thursday morning how that link was made.

Carter would not identify the kind of rifle found. Gary police are checking the ballistics to see if shell casings found at the scene match.

Gary man charged in Steel City Truck Stop shooting

By Susan Brown - susan.brown@nwi.com, (219) 662-5325 | Posted: Friday, May 28, 2010 6:00 pm

A Gary man has been charged with murder in the May 22 shooting of a tire service manager at the Steel City Truck Stop on Melton Road.

Prosecutors charged Kevin Cortez Brown, 32, in the death of Vernale Givens, who managed to make his way into the convenience store area before collapsing from gunshot wounds.

According to charging documents filed Friday in Lake Superior Court, the store's clerk called 911 after seeing Givens bleeding from the mouth and with blood on his clothing.

Gary officers responding to the scene found Givens dead of gunshot wounds to the chest and back. Shell casings were located in the rear of the store.

Three days after Givens' shooting, Gary officers came upon a black Ford Taurus parked in the 300 block of Grant Street. The car matched the description of the vehicle believed used in the homicide. Witnesses alerted police to the driver of the car, later identified as Brown, attempting to flee through a backyard.

Court documents state Brown admitted to shooting Givens after confronting him about following Brown and hanging around his grandmother's house.

According to court documents, Brown is alleged to have told police he fired at Givens, who had lifted up his shirt, "til I seen him run off."

Brown then got into the Taurus, which he had stolen off a lot in Illinois, and drove away, the court documents state.

Gary man convicted in gas station clerk's murder

CROWN POINT | A Lake Superior Court jury has convicted the last of four men charged in last year's shooting of a Gary gas station attendant.

Elliott Montgomery, 25, was the second defendant to be tried for the murder of Gurjeet Singh, 26, who was shot to death June 14, 2009, during a robbery of the Grant Gas station at 1500 Grant St. in Gary.

Co-defendant James D. Bailey, 24, was found guilty April 1 of murder and murder during the perpetration of a robbery. Bailey was subsequently sentenced to 60 years in prison.

Montgomery was convicted late Thursday of murder during perpetration of a robbery following a four-day trial.

Digital surveillance tapes showed the four suspects enter the store and kick their way into the cash register area.

Singh was shot while resisting the attack. Following the robbery, which netted a VCR and a carton of cigarettes, the four men fled in a car later found registered to the mother of the lone shooter, Stephen Haines, 19.

Haines had faced a sentence of life without parole until pleading guilty Aug. 9 to murder and robbery.

Prior to Montgomery's case going to the jury Thursday, Haines was formally sentenced to an 80-year prison sentence in lieu of life without parole.

A fourth defendant, 19-year-old Monte Ingram, is awaiting sentencing Nov. 19 after accepting a plea deal to robbery.

Gary man charged with false informing about assault in jail

HOBART | A 25-year-old Gary man recanted a report he was sexually assaulted while incarcerated inside a Hobart jail, police said.

Jason Michael Carothers was charged last week with false informing, a Class A misdemeanor through Lake Superior Court.

Police Detective Garrett Ciszewski said he was contacted by Deputy Warden Travis of the Lake County Jail on Aug. 13 about information given to him by an inmate.

The inmate, Carothers, told Ciszewski he was sexually assaulted by another inmate while inside the Hobart City Jail.

Carothers also said that he was taking steps to sue the city of Hobart because of the incident.

Ciszewski said he reviewed videotape footage taken inside the jail cell when Carothers was incarcerated and saw no sign of any type of sexual attack by other inmates.

Carothers, when presented with that evidence, said he was uncertain if he had been assaulted.

Gary man charged with theft from hospitalized truck driver

HOBART | A 20-year-old Gary man allegedly stole credit cards and other items from the stored belongings of an ailing truck driver, police said.

Lloyd J. Diehl was charged with theft, a class D felony, on Wednesday in Lake Superior Court.

Police Detective Ronald Russo said it was during his investigation of a theft in Hobart that he was also called to look into a similar incident in Gary.

Russo was able to connect clothing items recovered inside a towed Hobart car as belonging to Diehl. Inside the clothing items, Russo also discovered missing credit cards and a checkbook belonging to a truck driver.

Diehl later told police he had worked for a Gary-based trucking company as a mechanic and had taken stored items that didn't belong to him.

The truck driver who had reported the items taken said he had been driving a semitrailer for Roehl Transport when he became ill and had to be admitted to a hospital.

Gary man charged with injuring former Andrean High School football star

Myles Mendoza was arrested Sept. 23, 2010, on a misdemeanor battery charge following a fight in July at the Portage IMAX.

PORTAGE | An 18-year-old Gary man has been charged with misdemeanor battery in the wake of a beating this summer outside the Portage 16 IMAX theater that left a former Andrean High School football standout seriously injured.

Myles Mendoza was taken into custody Thursday on a warrant and his bond is set at $7,500 surety or $800 cash, according to Porter County Deputy Prosecutor Mark Acevedo.

The charge carries a potential penalty of up to a year behind bars.

Mendoza is accused of attacking Mike Skinner, breaking the young man's jaw in two places and leaving him with 10 stitches, two black eyes and a concussion.

Mike Skinner's mouth remains wired shut from the injuries and he has lost 27 pounds, his mother, Karen Skinner, said Friday.

"He just can't eat anything," she said.

The 18-year-old was able to attend Wabash College as planned, but he is unable to play football this season, Karen Skinner said. The school offered to redshirt Skinner for the year, allowing him to maintain his eligibility to play four years of college football once he's healed.

She said the plan is for him to begin noncontact training in the spring. In the meantime, his fraternity, Sigma Chi, has brought in a cook to help him deal with the special dietary needs from having his mouth wired shut.

Skinner told police he was at the Portage theater with his girlfriend and a group of friends July 22 when he received a text near the end of the movie that said his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend was waiting to fight him.

When Skinner and his group left the theater, he said he was approached by Mendoza. Skinner accused Mendoza of "sucker punching" him from behind.

Karen Skinner said individuals at Wabash College and back at home have done much to help the family.

"He's had so much support from so many people in the region," she said. "That has helped a lot."

Skinner was a football standout at Andrean. He was a member of The Times' all-area football first team after compiling 54 receptions for 988 yards and 10 touchdowns his senior season in 2009 for the 59ers.

Mendoza played baseball and football at Portage High School.

Gary man charged in brother's fatal shooting

Prosecutors charged Robert Lacy, 22, with murder and reckless homicide in the death of his 33-year-old brother, Gregory Lacy, of the 700 block of E. 41st St.

Hearing "a pop," the witness turned around to see Robert Lacy holding his brother and saying he was sorry, court records state.

Police: Drunken driving crash injured four on the Borman

An intoxicated Gary man caused an accident that injured four people and blocked traffic on the Borman Expressway on Sunday afternoon, the Indiana State Police said.

Deandre Hallman, 23, was arrested after police said he smashed his car into an SUV about 3:50 p.m. while merging from the right-center lane into the left-center lane between the Cline Avenue and Burr Street exits on Interstate 80-94.

The SUV hit the left median and rolled over, landing on its top. Hallman's car hit the outer wall and came to a stop. Two people fled from Hallman's car, Sgt. Alan Jamerson said, and haven't been apprehended.

Hallman appeared intoxicated, and a blood test showed his blood-alcohol concentration was 0.15, Jamerson said, nearly twice the 0.08 legal limit in Indiana. He was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, unsafe lane movement and having expired license plates.

The four adults in the SUV, ages ranging from 20 to 49, were transported to the Methodist Hospitals Northlake Campus in Gary, Jamerson said. Their injuries included neck pain, a broken leg, back pain, and ankle pain.

All eastbound lanes were blocked temporarily while crews cleaned up the accident, delaying traffic a few miles to the west before the lanes were reopened.

Man sentenced for confining woman later mauled by dogs

A Gary man was sentenced to 15 years in prison Wednesday for locking a woman in his basement where she was mauled by his dogs.

Robert Knox, 31, admitted to the charges July 22.

After the woman went to Knox's home in January, Knox refused to let the woman leave the house, forcing her to stay in the basement, prosecutors said.

Several dogs in the basement mauled the woman when she tried to escape. She suffered bites about the body and also injuries to her forehead and scalp that required a dozen stitches. The attack left the woman with a severely damaged arm and leg.

Gary man gets 30 years for killing woman's last living son

CROWN POINT | When 28-year-old Steve Louis Lonzo was sentenced to 30 years in prison Wednesday, it was for the shooting of the last son of a Gary woman who had lost four sons to gun violence.

Lorraine Johnson testified to the pain of violent crime when addressing the death of her 39-year-old son, Tony Johnson, an acquaintance of Lonzo.

Initially charged with murder, Lonzo pleaded guilty July 23 to voluntary manslaughter in Johnson's death.

Lonzo told police he and Johnson had argued before the shooting on Aug. 7, 2009, in the 1000 block of New Hampshire Street.

Johnson died of single gunshot wound to the head.

Upon hearing Lonzo may have been involved in the shooting, it was Lonzo's mother who is reported to have driven Lonzo to the Gary police station to answer to the allegations.
