By Melanie Yingst -



MIAMI COUNTY — The Ludlow Falls man who robbed Dad’s Carryout and the Valero gas station by knife point was sentenced to serve nine years in prison on Monday.

Miami County Common Pleas Court Judge Jeannine Pratt ordered Isaiah Williams, 20, to pay $261 in restitution to the carryout as part of his sentence, according to the prosecutor’s office.

Williams had just been released from jail and placed on community control for assaulting a police officer 1o days prior to committing the first degree aggravated robberies on Dec. 15. Williams is developmentally delayed, but was found mentally competent to stand trial by psychiatric services.

On Dec. 15, 2016, Williams allegedly ordered two employees to the floor by knife point, stole money and fled on foot from Dad’s Carryout. A clerk pulled a gun on Williams, but the gun didn’t fire. The knife was recovered near the scene.

Williams robbed the Valero gas station on South Market Street the same day. William was accompanied by another black male subject wearing a black hooded sweatshirt. A knife was also used in the robbery. No one was injured in the incident.

Williams will also serve five years on post-release control upon his release from prison.
