A Portage County grand jury indicted two Eastlake men on charges of aggravated robbery and kidnapping for their involvement in a February robbery at a University Drive residence.

Josip Medved, 22, and Christopher M. Blecic, 22, held four Kent State students at gunpoint inside 206 University Drive while they stole cash, two Xbox 360s and a Nintendo Wii, according to Kent Police reports.

Police arrested Blecic on March 20 and Medved before Spring Break on March 12.

Although two arrests have been made after a month-and-a-half-long investigation, the original criminal case report said three men were involved in the robbery. More arrests are expected in the case, police said.
