COLUMBUS (Lisa Rantala) -- A Short North business owner is asking the city for help as he shows ABC 6/FOX 28 the video of a violent incident that happened at his store last week.

Imayat Yllah has had the Short North Coffee House for five years now, and says he's had a problem with beggars coming insidem along with drinkers passing out in front of his store outside.

But police just arrested Kenneth Bolton, 48, after they say he came inside during the morning rush Wednesday, pleasured himself underneath and table and repeatedly hit a customer who asked Bolton to leave.

Police charged Bolton with robbery since they say he also took the customer's cell phone before he ran.

Yllah hopes his surveillance video keeps Bolton locked up and encouraged police to patrol his block of High Street more often during the night and overnight hours.Customer Beaten After Confronting Man about Lewd Behavior
