Pregnant woman terrorized by home invaders


Youngstown police are investigating a home invasion where a pregnant West Side woman was terrorized, assaulted and held at gunpoint.

The 21-year-old woman was in her Mahoning Avenue home with her 25-year-old boyfriend just after 1 a.m. today when the boyfriend decided to go to a corner store for cigarettes. The woman, who is seven months pregnant, was home alone with her 2-year-old son when the intruders broke in.

The woman told police she was in a bathroom when she heard loud noises that she assumed were made by her boyfriend returning from the corner store. When she went to see what was causing the commotion she was confronted by two masked men standing in her kitchen.

The woman noticed that one of the masked men was holding a gun when she entered the kitchen.
