Youngstown car-keys dispute leads to attack by a man with a machete

Published: Fri, August 30, 2013 @ 2:20 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A man told police he was cut with a machete in a dispute over car keys about 3:30 p.m. Thursday on North Portland Avenue on the West Side.

The man said in a police report he went to retrieve a car he had given to someone there three weeks ago to repair and had never gotten it back. He spotted the car at a drive through on Mahoning Avenue and the man driving it told him to follow him to a home on North Portland.

When they got there, the two began arguing, and the driver of the car pulled a machete out of pants and swung and cut the man on the thumb, reports said. As the victim was on the ground, the mother of the man with the machete jumped on top of him until they both drove away. Officers recovered a machete with blood on it, reports said.

That guy is a thief. He has been stealing things from the area. He stole my ladder. He is out on parole. He should be locked up.
