2 juveniles robbed in Girard

Published: Thu, November 24, 2011 @ 3:29 a.m.


A pair of masked robbers held up two juveniles Tuesday night as the victims were leaving a friend’s house, police said.

The juveniles, both 17, told police they were leaving a friend’s house at 106 E. Second St. when two masked men jumped from the bushes.

One of the men, holding a gun, ordered the victims to lie down on the ground and asked them what they had, according to a police report.

The victims told the robbers they had nothing, but the masked men ripped two necklaces from one of the victims’ neck, police said.

One of the necklaces is 16 inches and the other 18 inches. One of the necklaces had a medium-sized gold cross attached to it.

Police have suspects but as of Wednesday, no arrests had been made, police said.

Girard never had a "hood" so to speak , not like Y-town. More like a sign of the times .Desperate people do desperate things in desperate times. I expect things to get much worse in the comming months. better get a CCW permit and not be afraid to use it.

These 2 idiots (again,no description) are real tough, robbing 17 year olds. Not the sharpest tools in the shed.

The problem in Girard is the slumlords buying all the forclosed properties, and renting to the riff raff from Youngstown. Even if some of these people are decent their kid's gangsta friends follow them out here to cause all kinds of problems. These slumlords also have no problems renting to child molesters and rapists.

to leavinggirard: there is "riff-raff" in every town just like there are nice homes, ones crying for repair, and vacant properties. And, I'm not sure where you're from now but I bet there are child molesters and rapists much closer than you are aware of. It's not just in the city anymore.

At least the kids in the story didn't get shot/killed.

Yes but the "riff-raff" in Girard is the best . . .. TRASH IS TRASH ! Who cares where they come from . All's well that ends well . The boys learned the joy of giving and the solicitors got their early Christmas presents . . . ..
