WILMINGTON — A Clinton County Grand Jury has indicted a man on charges of aggravated robbery, escape, robbery and grand theft.

Daymon L. Haislip, 33 of Wilmington, is alleged to have committed robbery and grand theft (with two separate victims) on January 7, and then is alleged to have committed aggravated robbery and escape on January 9.

The aggravated robbery charge is a felony of the first degree (F1), and stems from an incident where, according to the indictment paperwork, Haislip either took or tried to take “a deadly weapon” from a law enforcement officer.

The escape charge (an F5) in the filed indictment alleges on that same day the defendant, knowing he was being detained, got away or tried to get away.

The alleged robbery offense (F2) that reportedly occurred Jan. 7 is stated in the bill of indictment to have included, along with an attempted or accomplished theft, an act where the defendant “did inflict, attempt to inflict, or threaten to inflict physical harm” on the victim.

And the grand theft charge (F4) claims Haislip stole a 2007 Jeep.

Meanwhile, Dylan C. Ross, 25 of Wilmington, is indicted on one count of felonious assault (F2). According to the indictment wording, Ross on December 11 allegedly caused serious physical harm to the victim.

Dontae Rashawn Washington, 31 of Dayton, is indicted on two charges of aggravated trafficking in drugs (both F3s), a charge of possessing a fentanyl-related compound (F4), and a charge of aggravated possession of meth (F5).

One of the aggravated trafficking charges allegedly involves a Dec. 15 act in the vicinity of a school and with the drug being fentanyl. The other aggravated trafficking charge allegedly involves a Dec. 15 act in the vicinity of a school and with the drug being methamphetamine.

Ethan J. Lakes, 21 of Blanchester, is indicted on one charge of gross sexual imposition (F3), and one charge of importuning (F3).

The importuning charge alleges that when the defendant was 15 years old, he solicited a 7-year-old child to engage in sexual activity with him. The gross sexual imposition charge alleges the defendant had sexual contact with the child. The time period listed in the indictment paperwork is the same for both charges, May 1, 2014 to Sept. 1, 2014.
