Ronald Neipp was indicted on more than a dozen charges by a Lucas County Grand Jury Friday in relation to a robbery which led to a chase with police.

The charges date back to an incident which began late on the evening of February 27. Toledo Police say Neipp walked up to a woman parking her car at J and D's Side Trip bar in west Toledo wearing a skeleton mask and brandishing a large knife and demanded money.

The woman, Kristine Hennessey, says she was aware of two other robberies at the bar and thought the man was playing a joke on her. When she realized he was serious, she told the man she had no cash. Hennessey say the man then told her to move over as he climbed into the car. Hennessey jumped out of the car. The suspect stole the vehicle and fled the scene. Hennessey escaped and those at the bar called 911.

A description of the vehicle and suspect was sent out over dispatch, and a nearby unit responded. A chase ensued, and Ronald Neipp was finally caught after police say he hit a pedestrian in the 1400 block of Kingsbury Road. The pedestrian is expected to be alright.

On Friday, a Lucas County grand jury indicted Neipp on seven counts of aggravated robbery, two counts of kidnapping, two counts of felonious assault and one count of failure to comply with an order or signal of a police officer.
