City cops arrest two in robbery at Galaxy

Published: Sat, April 16, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m.

Staff Report


Police have arrested two men in the armed robbery at Galaxy Seafood on April 9.

Nathaniel Dumas, 35, faces charges of aggravated murder and aggravated robbery, and James Thomas, 50, of 2013 Belmont Ave., is charged with aggravated robbery.

According to police, off-duty Youngstown officer Mike Walker was working security at the North Side restaurant and was in the back of the restaurant when Warren V. Wright, 32, of Youngstown, walked in around 6 p.m., pointed a gun at a worker at the front of the establishment, and demanded money.

Wright died after being shot in the chest by Walker.

Police said Dumas was the get-away driver, but because his involvement in the shooting was tied to a death, he was charged with aggravated murder charge because he was aiding and abetting in the death of Wright.

Dumas and Thomas were arrested around 9 p.m. Saturday, Thomas on Belmont Avenue and Dumas, on Alameda Avenue on the city’s North Side.

Years ago I lived on the north side of Youngstown, around the corner from the Galaxy. We went for walks at night without fear. The neighborhood was clean and evidence of pride in ownership was obvious. Little of that now exists. Pride in person or in ownership or in community is severely lacking and crime is rampant. When will the decent citizens of the north side again take charge and show pride in their community?

Interesting rhetoric, Photoman. What specific steps would you suggest these decent north side citizens do to show their pride in their community?
