Victim Speaks Out After Attacker is Released

COLUMBUS -- A woman, who was held up at gunpoint with two other friends last summer, speaks out after her alleged attacker is charged with more crimes while on house arrest.
Clinton Agbor, 20, was charged last week with robbing two women at gunpoint, one in Clintonville, the other in Grandview Heights.
When police arrested Agbor, he was wearing an ankle bracelet in connection with two crimes in July where he is accused of robbing five women at gunpoint in two separate crimes within days of each other. He’s also charged with raping one of the victims.
“It’s unfortunate other people had to endure this when it could’ve been avoided had he been in jail,” said one victim who asked that her name not be used. The woman and two friends were held up; just days after police say Agbor robbed two other women.
Prosecutors requested Agbor’s bond be revoked in October, but instead a judge ruled he could be placed on home confinement. Under the terms, Franklin County Parole & Probation officials say Agbor was allowed to leave home to go to work.
Agbor’s attorney says he has received no evidence linking Agbor to the recent crimes.
Agbor will remain locked up until his trial which is scheduled for July.
