Police standoff with machete-weilding man in Austintown


Two men were hospitalized Friday night after a police standoff with a machete-wielding man at 5050 Kirk Road.

Police responded around 7 p.m. to the house, which is just east of state Route 11.

Lt. Emil Grahovac, the officer in charge of the scene, did not return a call Friday seeking information on how seriously the men were hurt.

On Dec. 30, 2009, police were called to the same address for a 31-year-old man who held police at bay for an hour after telling them he was armed inside the home.
