According to Twinsburg Assistant Police Chief Bob Gonsiewski, Redrick reported Oct. 3 that she was disposing of garbage outside when a man, later identified as Johnson, forced her back into the store at gunpoint.

Redrick was arrested around 2 p.m. Oct. 5 at the Twinsburg Police Department. Twinsburg detectives located Johnson at his residence in Warrensville Heights around 5 p.m. Oct. 5, where he was arrested.

Reached by phone Oct. 6, a woman who identified herself as a manager of Panera referred all questions to police.
