Menacing man with stick arrested at mall http://www.privateofficer.com
When mall security officers and township police went to talk to a man wearing a towel on his head and carrying a stick as he walked through the mall for several hours, he assaulted them, Stark County Jail records said.
Jail records said Ernest C. Isles, 29, of 1139 18th St. NE in Canton, “made several aggressive moves” toward the police officer before hitting him and taking his police baton. Then the police officer pulled out his gun, the jail records said.
Isles was arrested at 3:54 p.m. Friday in the Westfield Belden Village mall parking lot, 4320 Everhard Rd. NW. He was charged with felonious assault and resisting arrest. He was also arrested on an unrelated assault warrant.
Jail records said police were called to the mall by security officers who said Isles was inside the mall, wearing a black coat with a blue stripe and wearing a towel on his head. He also carried the stick as he walked through the mall for about four hours, the jail records said.
Stark County Court records show Isles went to prison in 2004 for felonious assault.
He remained in jail this morning, held in lieu of $50,000 bond, jail records said.
