Man, 23, killed in motorcycle crash


A 23-year-old Beaver Township man, Kevin J. Jackson Jr., was killed Monday afternoon when the motorcycle he was driving went off Arrel Road in Poland Township.

Cited for disturbance


A tavern owner and nearby neighbor were both cited for creating a disturbance Saturday night.

Police cited one of the owners of the II Hype Bar, 948 Mahoning Ave., for loud music at 8:56 p.m. Saturday.

While an officer was at the tavern, he heard a loud blaring noise coming from a residence on nearby Summit Avenue Northwest and cited the owner for disturbing the peace.

The device was aimed directly at the back patio of the tavern and was louder than the music, police said.

Juveniles assaulted


Three juveniles told police they were assaulted by three other juveniles on Moncrest Avenue Northwest about 9 p.m. Saturday.

The victims — two males and a female — said three males on bicycles asked them if they wanted to engage in drug activity, then assaulted them when they said no.

One of the victims was knocked off of his bicycle, and the bicycle was taken from him.

Another of the suspects showed a handgun during the attack, police said. All three victims went to St. Joseph Health Center for treatment.
