BOARDMAN

Township police were kept busy over the weekend responding to two robberies and two cases in which guns were fired.

Two men arrested are due in Mahoning County Area Court here today. Tommy Timothy Grant, 18, of Youngstown, is charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, and Arachi Acevedo-Ramos, 26, of Boardman, is charged with using a weapon while intoxicated.

Grant was arrested after multiple units from Boardman, Youngstown and the Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office were called to Hudson Avenue and Hillman Way about 10 p.m. Friday for a large fight involving a gun.

A man was attempting to attack Grant as more than 20 people watched when police arrived, and the man said Grant robbed his two sons at gunpoint earlier that night, taking a cellphone and wallet, according to reports.

Police interviewed the man’s sons, who described the suspect and identified Grant as the man who robbed them, reports state.

Another robbery was reported later, about 12:10 a.m. Sunday. A woman said she walked out of a business in the 7000 block of West Boulevard toward her vehicle and saw a man wearing a dark bandanna over his nose and mouth approaching her, according to reports.

The woman told police the man pushed her, causing her to hit her head on the pavement and injure her left arm, and took her purse and ran. Police set up a perimeter and brought a police dog but could not find the suspect.

The suspect is described as a white man about 6 feet 2 inches tall, between 200 and 220 pounds, in his 40s with facial hair.

Monday, police were called to the 4000 block of South Avenue about 1:30 a.m. for reports of gunfire. Officers saw four men standing in the driveway of 4297 South Ave. and questioned them, finding several shell casings on the property. Ramos was among the men and admitted firing seven rounds into the air and said he drank more than seven beers, according to reports. Police also recovered a gun at the location.

I thought that with the new levy and all the cops they were going to hire, crime would disappear?

Crime will never disappear when you have losers like the ones in this article. Nothing but useless human DNA that eventually will land them in jail or six feet under.

The cockroaches are coming. These people populate like rabbits. You could put 10 in prison every day and 10-more gov't assisted babies are born with multiple baby daddys. Once their in the neighborhood they devastate where they live and make it intolerable for normal people to live Unless they(Bdmn Police) treat it like Poland or Canfield do (make it uncomfortable for them) the cockroaches will come. Open enrollment in schools don't help either. Good luck

When was the last murder in Boardman ALLBS? How about the last real fire not small trash fires and fender benders the township pays the big truck to attend? These nice people in the article will no doubt be used to scare the voters next time they need more of our money.

I can't believe people north of 224 still believe they are going to be safe in the upcoming years. I clearly remember people telling my folks to leave the upper south side in the late 1980's. My folks and a lot of the neighbors thought that the area would NEVER go bad. Now, its a war zone. If I lived on the North side of Boardman, I would be running out of that area.

We keep moving south and they just follow us. Next the govt. will be giving them $200, 000.00 homes for free just so they could keep up with the Joneses. Don't work for anything, it's your right as an American to get all the freebies you can get. I'm tired of hearing about slavery. My family wasn't even in this country during those times. Leave me out of your sob stories!

Stopping the spread of Sec.8 housing would help slow down the enroaching blight.

Boardman is the new Southside. Boarded up homes, punk kids, LOTS of drugs in the schools and now a police department that looks and acts like soldiers. Driving around in armored cars and military vehicles. Starting to look like a war zone to me.

Easy solution send all the police to Canfield and Poland and let them show them how to make this population responsible for the lions share of the problem feel highly uncomfortable. They all know it and stay clear of these places because they won't tolerate it at all. They stop them just because they can to send a message and it works.
