Ross Grand Jury Indicts Indiana Worker, Girlfriend vs. Boyfriend

The Ross County Grand Jury returned 23 of their 24 cases Friday, with three open. 

In one, video shows a local man was attacked by a worker from Indiana. 

According to the Ross County Prosecutor's Office, on July 24th, a man entered the restroom of Patrick's Pub at the Quality Inn off Bridge Street, when he said another man entered and attacked him, causing a lacerated lip and broken tooth. 

Surveillance video was used to identify 33-year-old Russel Wishin of Fort Wayne, Indiana, who was with a crew working on the IHOP and staying at the hotel.  Wishin was finally picked up October 2nd, and crewmates could not explain why he allegedly attacked the victim. 

Because of the broken tooth, the indictment is for a second degree felonious assault.  Wishin could get up to eight years and $15,000 in fines.

A complaint of assault led to a firearms charge. 

According to the Ross County Prosecutor's Office, a Ross County Sherrif's deputy responded to Family Dollar in Frankfort October 13th. 

There, 24-year-old Abby E. Brown said her boyfriend Antonio Staunton had assaulted her.  He then said she had a gun, which she affirmed was in her car.  The deputy found a loaded and chambered handgun in the back seat, accessible to the diver. 

For indictments for fourth degree felony for improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle, Brown could get up to 18 months and $5,000 in fines.  

Staunton had been indicted earlier for assault.
