Keith Anderson says that he has the help of a colleague who was attacked early in the morning when someone stole his car, a laptop and Christmas gifts for his children.
If he has the help of his colleague in the aftermath of an attack in the early morning, a robber reportedly cleaned hundreds of dollars worth of toys from Keith Anderson’s truck — just a month before Christmas.
Keith Anderson, a bouncer to singer Nick Lachey’s sports bar in Cincinnati, Ohio, was allegedly helping his colleague, Ellie Richardson, after she was shot in the face by a man who the police identified as 36-year-old Lavoris Hightower.
Ellie Richardson, 27, was shot in the face outside of Lachey’s Bar is the beginning of the morning, shortly before when Keith Anderson says his car was stolen.
“I’ve lost everything,” Anderson told Fox 19. “I had about $900 from toys for my kids for Christmas.”
Anderson added, this was the first time that he went shopping for christmas gifts early in the season, “so I wouldn’t worry about the messages late.” But now, he said, “Everything is gone.”
Anderson, according to Fox 19, was warming up his car outside the bar in the Over-the-Rhine, in the area when he heard the gunshots that injured Richardson.

He is reported to have said that he spoke with the police about what happened, someone jumped in his car, which was 30 metres away, and drove away.
Cincinnati Police confirmed to Fox 19 that the theft of the car is not connected with the shooting.
Law enforcement eventually found the bouncer of the car, but it was missing his laptop and “photos of his children were gone,” Fox 19 reported.
He had reportedly been saving money to afford Christmas presents for his children, Anderson said. He can only work part-time at Lachey’s Bar due to a heart condition.

Although his car was found, Anderson told Bob Deck, the man who is also a YouCaring fundraising page for him, which had suffered damage and the keys were still missing.
The page, which from Wednesday evening brought more than $6,000 towards the $10,000 goal, will assist Anderson with his car, and the problems, together with the financing of a new laptop and Christmas gifts, Deck said.
