Victim aids robbers
YOUNGSTOWN -- A 27-year-old Mount Vernon Avenue man said he gave a jump-start to the car of the people who had just stolen a CD player and VCR from his South Side home. The man told city police was on his way home around 1 a.m. Saturday and saw a man standing beside a Chevrolet Camaro driven by a woman. When the man said she needed a jump, the homeowner helped them out, noticing stereo equipment and a television in the rear of the car. When he arrived home, he discovered his door had been kicked in and the items missing.
