Man robbed of bike on bike trail over the weekend
A 27-year-old Mineral Ridge man suffered a severe laceration and other injuries at 5:11 p.m. Saturday in an assault and robbery of his bicycle while riding on the Warren bike trail.
The man called 911 from the area of Woodland and Railroad avenues Northeast, near the location of the assault. When police arrived, they found the man with a severe laceration to his head, and he had swelling to his cheek. Police searched the area but did not find the bicycle or the suspects.
He was taken to ValleyCare Trumbull Memorial Hospital for treatment.
The man said he was riding his 26-inch Schwinn Frontier mountain bike valued at $350 near Charles Street Northeast when two black males threw rocks at him. The next thing he remembers, he was laying on the ground.
His glasses were knocked off, so he didn’t get a good look at them, he said.
