Boy faces charges

A 15-year-old boy faces felonious-assault charges, accused of putting a butcher knife to the throat of his 16-year-old girlfriend just after midnight New Year’s Day.

Bryan A. Rivera was taken to the Martin P. Joyce Juvenile Justice Center in Youngstown about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday after officers responded to the incident at a Compass West Drive apartment complex, according to records.

Police said Rivera choked and punched his girlfriend several times. The girl declined medical treatment, reports stated.

Official: Ordinance doesn’t apply

WARREN

Greg Hicks, Warren’s law director, says a 1984 Warren ordinance that prevents Warren employees from working more than 20 hours per week if they come back to work after retiring isn’t applicable to elected officials.

Hicks and Griffing both filed letters in mid-2011 indicating they would retire at the end of 2011. Judge Gysegem’s letter doesn’t give an intended retirement date.
