STRUTHERS -- Police arrested a 32-year-old Kentucky man Friday after he was accused of threatening to kill a city woman.
Police said he may also be a suspect in the robbery of a pizza delivery person in Kentucky. A car stolen during that robbery was recovered Monday in Struthers.
Police charged George S. Poole, also known as George S. Guy Jr., with aggravated menacing, receiving stolen property and falsification after he was accused of threatening to kill a woman who resides in the apartment complex at 594 Youngstown-Poland Road where he was staying.
The woman told police she knocked on the door of the apartment where Poole was staying Friday morning. She asked that a dark green Toyota Corolla blocking her in be moved, so she could take her children to school.
The woman alleges Poole started yelling and cursing at her. She became frightened and contacted police, saying he threatened to kill her.
A check of the license plate on the car, which the woman provided to police, indicated the car was stolen. When police arrived, the car was not there, and they were unable to contact the apartment residents.
The woman called police a short time later to report that the man was at her door. When police arrived, he was on the front steps of the woman's residence.
After the man was arrested, he told police his name was George Poole, but a check of the birth date and Social Security number he provided indicated his name is George Guy. The man told police there is a discrepancy because he was adopted and changed his name.
Police also discovered three addresses listed as the man's residence: one in Erlanger, Ky.; and two in Florida -- Pompano Beach and Fort Lauderdale.
When questioned about the stolen car, Poole told police that he hitched a ride with a man he knows only as Mike in Florence, Ky. Police recovered the car Monday after it was discovered parked against the Advanced Auto Parts building on Midlothian Boulevard.
