Police seek 2 men in slashing, robbery of woman in bank lot



Published: Mon, July 30, 2001 @ 12:00 a.m.



AUSTINTOWN -- Township police are looking for the man who robbed and slashed a Youngstown woman at a South Raccoon Road bank Monday afternoon and the man who also was in the getaway car.

Both suspects are described as white males in their mid-20s with shaved heads. Neither man wore a shirt during the attack. One man has his eyebrow pierced.

The men fled in a maroon Pontiac Grand Am after the attack.

The victim, Debra Mitchell, 39, of Elbertus Avenue, Youngstown, was in stable condition this morning in St. Elizabeth Health Center.

What happened: Mitchell told police she went to Key Bank at 1737 South Raccoon Road around 3 p.m. Monday to deposit between $5,000 and $6,000 for her employer. She had the money in bags, which she carried in a cardboard box.

When she got out of her car, the Grand Am parked beside her and one of the men got out and tried to grab the cardboard box, she said.

Mitchell said she wouldn't let go of the box, so the man pulled out a switchblade and slashed her in the stomach.

The man then grabbed the box, got back in the car and the two fled.

Mitchell got back in her car and followed the men east on New Road to Edinburg Drive, she said. She also called 911 on her cell phone.

Mitchell said she stopped following the men on Edinburg Drive, when she first realized she had been slashed. Her wound was about two inches long. Police later searched the area but could not find the men.
