Clay man charged with hitting witness with car as he left with stolen lawn mowers
A Clay man is accused of breaking into a home and stealing several items including two lawn mowers.
Onondaga County Sheriff's deputies say 34-year-old Phillip Randall, of 8389 Maple Rd., broke into a home and an unattached garage at 8754 Henry Clay Blvd. around 12:15 p.m. Sunday night. Deputies say he stole two lawn mowers, a rototiller, a DVD player and audio tapes. A witness approached his vehicle as he allegedly tried to leave. When Randall yelled at the person to get away, deputies say the witness tried to move out of the vehicle's path, but was struck in the leg by Randall's car. The witness was not hurt and Randall allegedly took off on Henry Clay Blvd.
Randall was arraigned in the Town of Clay Court and sent to the Justice Center on $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.
