Man takes "Make me a sammich woman" a little too serious…
AKRON, Ohio — A Summit County jury found an Akron man guilty of domestic violence on Thursday after he allegedly beat up his live-in girlfriend because she would not make him a sandwich.
According to Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh, Cleottis Gilcreast, 52, of Akron, was found guilty of domestic violence, and domestic violence-menacing, for a May 5th incident, where he allegedly slammed his girlfriend to the ground, face first, after she refused to make him a sandwich. The attack happened after Gilcrest pulled a knife on the woman and threatened her.
According to Walsh the victim attempted to leave the apartment the couple shared after the knife was pulled, and started packing a bag to leave with her sister and brother-in-law, who were in the apartment and witnessed the incident. When the victim reentered the apartment, according to Walsh, that is when Gilcrest slammed her to the ground.
Police stopped Gilcreast a short time after the incident as he was walking from the apartment and arrested him.
At the time of this incident, Gilcreast was already on probation for a July 31, 2008 domestic violence conviction against this same victim.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on June 21st.
So guys, any sandwich related criminal nicknames you got for this guy?
