18-year-old accused of assaulting, robbing man in Southgate Parkway parking lot

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- A Cambridge man has been arrested and charged following a reported strong-arm robbery in the parking lot of a Southgate Parkway business.
Eighteen-year-old Austin Cage Dickens of Cambridge has been charged with a felony-two count of robbery following the alleged incident that took place just before noon on Monday in the McDonald's parking lot on Southgate. A juvenile girl reportedly called the victim and asked him for money for cigarettes, telling the man she would meet him in the parking lot. After receiving the money, the girl made some rude remarks and the victim asked for his money back. At that time, Dickens and two other males jumped out of a car and confronted the victim. Dickens reportedly then hit the victim in the head and mouth, took his wallet and fled the scene. The victim drove to law enforcement and reported the incident to police. Officers then went to a Meadowpark Drive apartment and found Dickens, the juvenile girl and another male.
Dickens is currently in the Guernsey County Jail awaiting a bond hearing set for Wednesday.
