Local News

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Ohio State University has issued a safety notice after Buckeye Donuts was robbed at gunpoint.

According to Columbus police, at about 3 a.m., Friday, two males entered Buckeye Donuts, located at 1998 N. High Street, when one showed a handgun and demanded the money from the register.

The suspects took the money and ran from the area. No injuries were reported.

Buckeye Donuts was also robbed at gunpoint, in July. Owner Jimmy Barouxis said he felt like his business was violated both times.

“This happened so recently that I couldn’t believe it happened again a second time,” said Barouxis. “My second reaction was just literally — I was literally just disgusted, grossed out by it. The thought of it grossed me out physically. I didn’t feel well just thinking about what had happened and what my employees went through.”

Suspect information was limited, and police ask anyone with information on this robbery to call the Columbus Division of Police at 614-645-4545.

OSU says additional safety resources are available here.
