Boardman police searching for rock-throwers


Police here are looking for whoever threw a softball-sized rock through the window of a Willow Drive home just after midnight Friday.

The rock, according to reports, just missed one of the residents as it landed on his bed where he was sleeping.

When police arrived, they spoke to the victim and two witnesses. One witness told police he heard a loud noise while he was downstairs watching TV.

When he ran outside to see what happened, he saw five juveniles running through the neighborhoods.

He added that he believes he knows who they are because of past physical altercations.

The witness who was nearly hit by the rock refused medical attention.

There were no visible cuts on him. The victim said he wants to press charges if police find out who is responsible.
