WHEELERSBURG, Ohio (WOUB) — Authorities in Scioto County believe they have the person responsible for a brutal kidnapping and robbery.
In February, an 84-year-old man arrived home to find a man in his house in Wheelersburg. The victim was robbed, beaten, then left locked in his car trunk after the suspect stole and wrecked it.
