Posted By on August 22, 2022

SOLON, Ohio Authorities arrested a second man in connection with the armed carjacking of a 62-year-old rabbi earlier this month.

Donteze Congress, 18, of Maple Heights is charged with aggravated robbery in Bedford Municipal Court. He is being held in the Cuyahoga County Jail on $100,000 bond.

Another man, Thomas Donegan Williams, also 18 of Maple Heights, is also charged in connection with the Aug. 9 robbery of the Beachwood rabbi. Williams is charged in federal court in Cleveland with carjacking and using a gun during a violent crime.

Williams is also charged in connection with the armed carjacking of a 22-year-old woman in Cuyahoga Falls about two hours prior to the Solon robbery. Congress is not charged in the Cuyahoga Falls robbery, and he has not been charged in federal court.

Solon police say the two men rear-ended the rabbis car about 1:30 p.m. on Glenallen Avenue, near Inwood Road. One robber stuck a gun in the rabbis side while the other stood by with a gun in his hands, according to federal court records.

The duo stole the rabbis keys and sped away in his 2022 Volvo S90. Solon police tracked the car by license plate readers and the cars On-Star navigation system to a barbershop on East 94th Street and Garfield Avenue in Garfield Heights.

Police arrested Williams after chasing him into a nearby building, where he tried to hide. Investigators found a credit card in Williams pocket that belonged to the woman robbed earlier in the day in Cuyahoga Falls.

That robbery happened on Third Street near Bailey Road. The womans car was rear-ended, and when she got out, armed robbers pointed a gun at her and stole her 2014 Jeep SW.
