74-year-old's car stolen on Youngstown's South Side

Published: Mon, March 1, 2010 @ 8:51 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A city man’s car was stolen after he was dragged from the driver’s seat.

A 74-year-old Labelle Avenue man told police a woman he knows as “Lady” asked him for a ride to F & N Market on Market Street about 1:30 p.m. today.

When the pair arrived at the store, the woman asked for money to buy beer, according to a police report. When he told her he didn’t have any money, the woman got out of the car, dragged the man out of the driver’s side and onto the ground.

The man told police she took $2 from his pocket and his car keys and said, “I dare you to call the police,” before driving off in his car.

As much a shame as it is a crime,..

Clearly the older gentleman shouldn't have had anything to do with that individual if all he knows her by is a street name.

Where it sounds as though she's either younger or clearly more fit than the elderly man involved.

Apparently the previous trade off's were acceptable and this time the chick decided to strike and have things totally her way.

One can only imagine what accord had them associated. But with going by the name of " Lady " and apparently not having a man or family member she could call on.

One can surmise whoever she is she's apparently worn her welcome out with everybody else she knows and you certainly don't accomplish that being savory,..

Thus whatever accord she had with the elder gentleman she compromised. He's now found out why he was such an outlet she could position as an eventual target.

Not knowing her formal name it's clear they're not family friends. Thus unless they were fellow church members or good will charity workers.

One can only imagine how their paths crossed to have become acquaintances where she'd play him like that,..

He's actually lucky because the way it sounds she's considerably more fit than him. Where to only drag him out the car to go through his pockets and take his car.

That's not the conduct of somebody just in need of a beer, cigarette, whiskey or wine.

By conduct she sounds like a desperado dope head and to act in such a brazen manner she's likely been that way a while.

So it sounds like that ordeal could have turned out a lot worse for the elderly gentleman than it did,.. thank goodness it didn't.

Now one can only hope he gets his car back, a medical checkup for injuries and possibly be screened for transmittable disease if he's had any " extracurricular activity " contact with her before.

Where he can hopefully learn his lesson and this skirmish doesn't escalate beyond that. Especially given the manner of treatment and the intimidating threat she he states she boldly rendered to his face,..

You'd think an older man would know better than to deal with women that will only allow him to know her by such legendary one liners as Honey, Daisy, Baby, Sunshine, Lady or an initial,..

More crime at the lovely F $ N Market. What ever happened to the police chief wanting to shut this store down due to the amount of crime associated with this store? I made the mistake of stopping there once, just seeing the class of people who stand around the store at all hours of the day made me realize in a hurry that there are certain areas of Youngstown that you just do not go to if you are not a thug drug dealer.

Not nearly as bad as I expected. The headline made me think some poor guy lost a '36 Olds.

There is a moral to this story . The 74-year-old Labelle Avenue man should not have offered her a ride if he wasn't able to buy refreshments ! She thought that this was a date ! A large bottle of Malt Liquor would have made her or any other woman in the subculture docile . The boys in the hood make good use of it when crack cocaine gets scarce .

To fleeytown, fyi the crime didnt happen at F&N Food Market. That store is located on the East Side of Youngstown, the article claims it happened on the South Side so something doesnt add up. Even if it did happen at F&N, the crimes that occur outside of the store does not associate the crime with the store. And yes the city did want to shut it down but supporters from the area and petitions of people who know its a family owned business kept it opened. Again the crimes that occur does not have anything to do with the store, the owner, or its family.
To the editor and writer of this article get your story straight. The crime occured on the city South Side on Market Street, no where near the East Side where F&nN Food Market is located. I think your going to have to research this crime more and stop slandering the business name.
