Man lured to motel, then beaten and robbed
BOARDMAN — Police are investigating a robbery that occurred at a Market Street motel over the weekend.
A 28-year-old Youngstown man told police that he met a woman early Sunday morning at a Hilda Street bar. The woman invited the man to the Tower Motel, Boardman, where she was staying. When the pair went into the motel room, a man struck him in the head and then pointed a gun in the victim’s face.
One man continued to beat the victim while another went through his pockets. The two robbers took $400 cash, a cell phone, gold chair and an earring from the victim before leaving him in the motel room, a police report said.
