An Amber Alert has been issued for an Elyria man who walked away from a medical furlough and was involved in a domestic violence incident this morning.
The alert asks people to be on the lookout for Robert Beane III, 27, and his 10-month-old son. Beane is believed to be driving a 2018 Chevrolet Camaro with the license plate HAQ8308. The Camaro, which had been rented from Avis at Cleveland Hopkins Airport, was reported stolen this morning in Elyria while parked outside a home on Oak Street.
Beane walked away from custody during a medical furlough, granted July 5 by Lorain County Common Pleas Judge Raymond Ewers, and was believed to be involved in an assault this morning on the mother of the 10-month-old.
Around 5:25 a.m. today, Lorain police were called to the 900 block of Central Drive and found a woman who had been beaten.
The woman had returned an apartment after an evening out and encountered Beane, with whom she’d shared an Elyria address. Beane argued with the woman, who had a protection order against him, and witnesses told police he struck her with a handgun and stomped her before driving off.
The woman was treated at the scene but refused transport to a local hospital. The report says police plan to charge Beane with domestic violence and violation of a protection order.
Beane was arrested July 2 following a secret indictment on charges of kidnapping, aggravated robbery, felonious assault, having weapons while under disability and theft. Many of the counts also contained firearms and repeat violent offender specifications.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Lorain police at 440-204-2100.
