Boardman police searching for rock-throwers

Published: Sat, July 27, 2013 @ 4:39 a.m.


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.

I hope they catch the Juveniles that did this, but with the laws being what they are, not much will be done to them. Unless one of them squeals on the rest (which is unlikely) they may not even be found. At least no one was killed or seriously injured.

Oh boy... Here we go with the assumed accusations

I've read plenty of vandalism cases in Boardman, and it's usually Boardmanites doing this. Don't make this a case of " everything that is criminal comes from Youngstown "

Section 8 has brought this grief upon Boardman. Southside is slowly expanding it's borders. North Boardman is the new ghetto.

Unfortunately, the previous comments are correct. Boardman has definitely become a ghetto on its northern end. Sadly, it is creeping up to the 224 border.

Section 8 housing is ruining Boardman. Did the trustees have to approve Section 8 before it was allowed in??
