BOARDMAN, Ohio - A man and woman were arrested for allegedly holding a man at gunpoint and attempting to steal his money.

Mark Moody, 25 was placed under arrest after the man reported being robbed at the Splash and Shine Auto Bath carwash on Midlothian Boulevard.

According to a report, the robbery victim first saw Moody at the Dollar General across the street. Moody allegedly showed interest in the money the robbery victim used to pay for his purchase.

After a brief conversation, the robbery victim left the Dollar General, Moody following after him getting in to a Dodge Durango.

Moody allegedly approached the robbery victim while he was drying his car, held him at gunpoint and demanded money.

The robbery victim fought back and put his finger behind the trigger so it would not go off. He says Moody headbutted him several times.

The robbery victim pulled Moody out in to the street and wrestled the gun away from him.

Moody then fled to the Dollar General parking lot and was seen getting in to the backseat of the same Dodge Durango the victim reported.

Police tracked the Durango through surveillance video and were able to find the owner's home.

The Durango belonged to Gracie Rollins, 27, of Zedaker Street. Police suspect Rollins was driving the car when the suspects fled the scene.

Moody is charged with aggravated robbery and Rollins is charged with obstructing justice.

After further investigation, police found that the gun obtained from the scene matched the description of a firearm listed as stolen in Pennsylvania.
