2 men accused of stealing PlayStation 4 in Trotwood armed robbery, chase

Two men are facing charges after police said they allegedly stole a PlayStation 4 at gun point from someone trying to sell it online and then fled from police Tuesday, according to court records.

Deon Ulmer Jr., 18, and Jerrod Hayes, 21, are both charged with aggravated robbery and failure to comply, court records show.

According to a 911 call, the victim was selling the gaming system online before the armed robbery took place at a house on Lorimer Street in Trotwood.

“My son was selling a PlayStation online, the people came here and they pulled a gun on him and robbed him at gunpoint,” the caller told dispatchers.

“We were talking about the deal and he was acting like he was reaching to grab the money,” the victim told dispatchers. “Then he looked inside to see if everything was inside of it, and then he pulled a gun at me.”

The two men fled from the house in a silver 2004 Dodge SUV, with Ulmer at the wheel, according to court records.

After the robbery, Ulmer failed to pull over for police and fled in the car, according to court records.

Officers later found them on North James H. McGee.
