Austintown man arraigned in Youngstown home invasion

Published: Mon, April 1, 2013 @ 6:51 p.m.

Marquel Clemons, of Austintown, faces eight charges in a January invasion of a home in which a child was sleeping.

Man arraigned on home-invasion charges


An Austintown man was arraigned on aggravated robbery, kidnapping, assault and weapons charges Monday, accused of forcing his way into a home and firing a gun while a 7-year-old slept in the residence.

Marquel D. Clemons, 21, of West LaClede Avenue, did not enter a plea in Mahoning County Court on four counts of first-degree aggravated robbery, two counts of second-degree felonious assault, one count of first-degree kidnapping and one count of firing a gun into a residence, a second-degree offense. All the charges are felonies.

Formal reading of the charges was waived and Judge David D’Apolito set bond at $100,000. Another court date was not scheduled at the hearing. Clemons is being held at the Mahoning County jail.

Clemons is accused of being one of two men who went to a woman’s home on the 300 block of North Roanoke Avenue in January, where Clemons allegedly struck the mother of the child and held her at gunpoint. The child was asleep in another room, according to reports, and was not harmed.

Clemons and another man were asking for the woman’s boyfriend, but when the woman said her boyfriend wasn’t home they tried to enter the home again, one man through the back door and one through the front.

The woman’s boyfriend had been on the phone with her during the home invasion. When the boyfriend came to the residence, the men allegedly fired at the boyfriend before fleeing in a vehicle, according to reports.

Police had been investigating two men who came in to St. Elizabeth Health Center with gunshot wounds. Both said they had been shot in different places and did not know each other, according to police.

No other arrests have been made in the case.

It's odd that the boyfriend rushed home but didn't call police. It's odd that the mother didn't call police. It's odd that the police weren't involved until two suspects were brought into St. E's with gunshot wounds.

The Headline reads "Austintown man arraigned in Youngstown home invasion". Then it says "Marquel Clemons, of Austintown..." Then it says "Marquel D. Clemons, 21, of West LaClede Avenue..." Then it says the invaded home was on "300 block of North Roanoke Avenue..."
I think the headline should read "Youngstown man arraigned in Austintown home invasion." The Vindy needs to go back to using Proof Readers before releasing a story.
