Police looking for men involved in South Side robbery

Published: Mon, December 21, 2009 @ 5:41 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Police are looking for two men who burglarized an occupied home, holding a gun to the head of a teenage boy.

According to police, the 17-year-old Rush Boulevard boy was lying on a couch Sunday evening at his South Side home when he heard a knock on the door. The boy said he recognized one of the men as a friend of his brother, but when he opened the door the man put a gun to his head and forced him to lay on a couch.

The teen told police a second man game into the home and stole a video game system and some games while he was being held at gunpoint. The boy’s mother and father were upstairs in the home at the time of the robbery.

vindicator said recently that murders were down from last year, but the number of burglaries/robberies have to be way up, it's never-ending and i don't hear mayor williams or other leaders talking about it

If the boy recognized one of them as a friend of his brother, then they should mention his name.

Who gives a damn what color these people are. The problem is that crimes are being commited in all areas. It does not take a genius to figure out that the majority of the crimes that are being commited in the inner city of y-town involve Afr Amer., why is that you ask? It's b/c there are more Afr Amer living in this areas that are being affected.

But if you ask residents in Boardman, Hubbard, Poland, Austintown, and other nearby areas, you would be floored with the amount of crap that happens and unfortunately never makes it to the paper...hmm....doesn't that make you wonder.

Oldest scam in the book. The kid won't remember the "friends" name and send the police on a wild goose chase while his parents get him NEW game system on their insurance. The brother probably set the whole thing up so his buddies got the Xbox/ps3. Just a theory.

Back in the day when the mob ran Youngstown, there was a white mayor and a white police chief and there was white on white crime. i wonder did anyone call for the heads of the mayor and police chief because they were white? Crime is crime no matter what color the Mayor or Police Chief is.
