A 25-year-old Boardman man told police a man tried to rob him at knifepoint on Midlothian Boulevard on the city’s South Side.

The Boardman man said he was walking near Lucky Seven, 1396 E. Midlothian, around 3:30 p.m. Sunday when a tall man pointed a kitchen knife at him and told him to empty his pockets. When the Boardman man refused, a second man grabbed his throat from behind and threw him to the ground, according to a police report.

The first man jumped on top of him, held him on the ground and began to slash at him with the knife, cutting his arm and face, the report states.

The Boardman man broke free and turned to defend himself, but the two attackers fled east on Midlothian without completing the robbery.
