2 Youngstown men face robbery and rape charges
WARREN -- Bond is set at $1 million each for two Youngstown men facing numerous charges, including aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary.
Christopher McBride, 20, and Jamal Bullock, 30, appeared Tuesday in the courtroom of Judge Andrew Logan of Trumbull County Common Pleas Court to face two counts of aggravated robbery, two counts of aggravated burglary, two counts of rape, two counts of kidnapping and one count each of receiving stolen property and burglary. Both men pleaded innocent.
Judge Logan said McBride's case will be handled by Judge Peter Kontos. Bullock's case has been assigned to Judge W. Wyatt McKay.
Hubbard city Detective Robert Altiere said the two entered a woman's home on Parkview Avenue in Hubbard last Saturday and threatened her with a knife. Altiere said that while McBride sexually assaulted the woman, who is in her 50s, Bullock went through the house and took jewelry. They were driving a car that was reported stolen from Youngstown, Altiere said.
Detective Michael Begeot of Hubbard Township police said the two are accused of robbing a Shadyside Drive woman in her 70s later that day. Begeot said the two took jewelry and the woman's car.
