David MarshAKRON - An 51-year-old Akron man was thrown in jail after threatening a woman and her child with a shovel while attempting to rob them.

It happened around 9:30AM Thursday night, February 17th 2011, in the 900 block of Redfern Avenue.

The victim, a 41-year-old woman, told police she noticed a man standing next to her car after she pulled into the driveway. As she and her child exited the car, the man - identified as David Marsh - asked them for money. The victim said she didn't have any money as she and her child ran inside the house. The suspect was standing at the door when he raised a shovel in the air and demanded money. The victim called police.

Cops found 51-year-old Marsh still standing at the victim's door holding a shovel when they arrived.

He was placed under arrest, and charged with Aggravated Robbery, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (crack pipe) and Carrying a Concealed Weapon (knife found in his pocket).
