  Woman Gets Attacked At Car Wash


Police are asking the public to help identify the man who robbed a 24-year-old Youngstown woman at knife-point about 10 p.m. June 17 at the What-A-Wash, 5300 South Ave. The suspect is described as a 5-foot-6-inch black man in his 50s, weighing 150-165 pounds.

Township police are asking the public for help in identifying the man who robbed a 24-year-old Youngstown woman at knife-point.

Police said the robbery occurred about 10 p.m. June 17 at the What-A-Wash, 5300 South Ave. The woman told police she had just left work at a Boardman restaurant when she stopped to wash her car.

She was approached by a man who came from another carport who asked if she had change. She directed him to a change machine, and he walked away.

Police said the man returned and approached her with a knife, demanding money. The woman said she had none, and the man pressed the knife blade against her stomach, reports say.

The woman screamed, pushed the man away — causing the knife to scratch her slightly — and ran to South Avenue, police said.

Another vehicle pulled into the car wash and the woman yelled a warning about the man before getting into her vehicle and fleeing southbound on South Avenue, according to reports.

The suspect is described as a black man in his 50s, about 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing 150-165 pounds with short hair. He was wearing black shirt, pants , baseball cap and sunglasses. The suspect’s car was a navy blue, two-door, possibly a Ford Escort, with rust on it and a headlight out on the driver’s side.

Anyone with information is asked to call Boardman police 330-726-4144.

This article is clearly racist. The fact that they print the suspect's race is uncalled for. It is not the color of the perp's skin that caused him to do this horrendous act of violence. Then the article doesn;t even blame the man's upringing on his lack of conscience. Who the heck even wrote this article? ;)

Ah heck, I'm more deeply concerned about the blighted railroad tracks...at least we can throw tarps on them and pretend they're not there.

The gentleman in this video was clearly exercising his right to extract dues from this potential donor, why all the fuss?

Disgruntled donors prospective or otherwise are causing a multitude of problems for the subculture . Now this poor fellow has the police looking for him . All this could have been avoided by the contribution of some cash and or credit cards . We should all be more understanding of others culture .

Washing your car at at the What-A-Wash, 5300 South Ave. after dark may not be a wise move.If you want to catch that guy just pull in after dark to wash your car.I'm sure that he will be back.

Setting up a trap for him wouldn't be right . . ..

Indefensible and intolerable,..

Hence he should and in the event he doesn't get the short end of the stick during his next crime. He will be tracked down and apprehended.

Clowns like him have a decreased shelf life after such variables are shared in specifics. Suffice to say it's highly unlikely that was his first act of such a manner.

Now he's visualized and rightfully targeted. For which now beyond being on borrowed time his rat @zz is on the clock watch.

Nunya, I really hate to read your posts for the most part, but this one was spot on, at least I think it was. ( Your chit is usually nonsensical and extremely hard on the eye...just sayin' ;)

@ Freeatlast
Maybe just put trash around the What A Wash and the township will pay more attention to it.

This fellow was just trying to cut out the middle man, being Uncle Sam, to get our hard earned money! I think that's a novel idea. Instead of welfare checks, we can just hand it directly to the scum and trash! (Again I'm not really serious)
