Seth Emery Charged With Hitting Man In The Head With A Sledgehammer

Monday, January 13, 2020

Police have arrested Seth Emery, 29, after a man said Emery struck him in the head with a sledgehammer, causing him to lose consciousness. When the victim awoke, his wallet containing cash and credit cards was missing.

Emery is charged with attempted murder and especially aggravated robbery in an incident last Wednesday at a strip commercial center at 7401 E. Brainerd Road.

Police observed blood on the floor and a yellow sledgehammer near the blood. When looking at security footage from a nearby store, they observed a tall male being chased out of the store by the victim, who was wielding a ladder. When the mask came off during the chase, the police report said the assailant appeared to be Seth Emery, 29, who was wanted for another robbery from earlier that night.

Emery briefly spoke to the victim, and then walked away. About 10 minutes later, Emery walked back into the store. When the suspect came back out a few minutes later, he was holding a wallet. Emery then was seen walking back into the store, spent a few moments in the store, and then left the premises. According to the police report, Emery appeared to be laughing.

The victim said he was renovating the store, and had chased Emery out of the store with a ladder during their first encounter. He said Emery claimed he was “joking” and that a friend had told him to “mess with” the victim.

The victim said Emery came back a few minutes later and knocked him unconscious with the sledgehammer. The victim was taken to the hospital. Emery was apprehended the next day and transported to the Hamilton County Jail.

Seth Emery has a long criminal history. In 2016, he was charged with assaulting his pregnant girlfriend and assaulting an officer. In 2018, he was charged with rape, domestic assault and criminal impersonation.
