Police in Roswell do not recommend victims of crimes take matters into their own hands, but one man did last weekend when three men from Atlanta tried to take his lawnmower.
According to a police report, on Aug. 12 three men in a Penske van pulled up to a business on Old Alabama Road around 2:20 p.m. where Eduardo Baizel, 31, of Roswell, was mowing the lawn. When Baizel wasn’t looking, the men hopped out of the truck and began loading his lawnmower into it.
A fight ensued and the men eventually gave up and fled, police said. But minutes later, Johns Creek Police pulled over the truck just up the road from the crime scene and arrested the men: Dexter Bowen, 48; Traves Hall, 21; and Shamel Glover, 29.
All three men are facing charges of aggravated assault and criminal attempt to commit armed robbery. Glover was also charged with driving with a suspended license. All three men remain in a Fulton County jail.
