“All was well until the victim got into her car to leave at approximately 5 p.m.,” Barr said. “Guice then leaned into the car armed with a boxcutter and demanded the keys to the car. A struggle ensued and Guice entered the car from the driver’s side. The victim was able to exit the car onto the pavement on the passenger side of the car. Guice then took the victim’s vehicle striking her with the open passenger side door as he fled the parking lot.”

The victim ran inside the police station and suffered minor cuts and abrasions. Medics from the Troy Fire Department treated her on the scene. Efforts to locate Guice immediately following the incident were unsuccessful.

Just before 10 p.m., officers found Guice in the stolen 2005 Nissan Altima in the parking lot of Autumn Ridge Apartments and made contact with him. When officers attempted to stop him, Guice fled, striking an occupied vehicle in the parking lot. He then continued across North Knox Street before striking a parked vehicle at a residence. Guice was not wearing a seat belt and received non-life-threatening injuries.

The two occupants in the first vehicle that was struck also received non-life-threatening injuries. Alcohol
is believed to be a factor in the crash. All were transported to Troy Regional Medical Center by Haynes Ambulance. All were treated and released.

Armed robbery is a Class A Felony punishable by 20 years to life in prison. Guice’s bond was set at $60,000.
