Man charged with assault in street beating of 77-year-old


Darin Brinsey, 38, was arrested on a charge of assault and a warrant from Trumbull County after reports said he beat a 77-year-old man in the middle of Second Street on Sunday.

Officers were called there about 10:30 a.m. for a report of a man lying in the street bleeding. When they arrived, Brinsey yelled to police that he was defending himself and that the man choked him.

The victim told police Brinsey hollered at him when he was in the street. The victim said he told Brinsey to leave him alone and Brinsey came over and punched him in the head and face and kicked him in the ribs when he fell to the pavement. The victim had blood on his face, mouth, hands, elbow and knees, reports said.

A witness said they heard arguing and when they went to check, they saw Brinsey assaulting the man. A records check also revealed that Brinsey had a warrant for non-payment of support. As he was placed in a cruiser, Brinsey shouted “I’ll be back,” reports said.

News from Youngstown today:

"Darin Brinsey, 38, was arrested on a charge of assault and a warrant from Trumbull County after reports said he beat a 77-year-old man in the middle of Second Street on Sunday."

"A South Side woman was arrested for felonious assault and a 14-year-old boy was cited for assault after police said the two hit each other about 5:30 p.m. Friday on a South Side street."

"Police were called to Warren Avenue and Volney Road for a possible corpse and found 42-year-old Jonathan Wilson in the middle of the street lying in a puddle of vomit and breathing raggedly. An ambulance was called and when Wilson was searched before he was placed inside, an officer found an individual dose of heroin in a pack of cigarettes he was carrying."

"A pizza delivery driver was robbed of cash on the South Side about 9:10 p.m. Sunday."

"A 25-year-old woman was arrested on drug charges about 1:40 a.m. Sunday after police found a bag she was holding had 16 bags of marijuana inside."

"Police pulled over a car at Rush Boulevard and East Philadelphia Avenue about 11:50 p.m. Sunday for excessive tint on the windows. When they asked the occupants their names, one man gave a name and said he did not know how to spell it because he is mentally disabled."

"Earlier in the evening about 9:15 p.m., an officer pulled over a car for loud music on West Federal Street and a passenger in that car, DeAndre Smith, 19, of Eddie Street, also gave officers a false name, reports said……..When he gave a birth date he stuttered like he was nervous, reports said. The name and the birth date matched but the picture on the records check did not match the man in the car, reports said. Smith then admitted his real name and said he thought he had warrants from Boardman. However, a check under his real name showed he had failure to appear warrant from Youngstown. He was also jailed on the warrant and an obstruction of justice charge."

"A 36-year-old woman is expected to be arraigned in Youngstown Municipal Court today after she spit on a police officer late Friday in the parking lot of an East Side gas station….…An officer walked up to the van and when he did the driver, Kelly Portia, swore at him, reports said. The officer smelled alcohol and he asked Portia to step out, and she swore and threatened him, reports said. In the back seat was a female juvenile but reports did not say how old the girl was.…"

I wonder if we could get Pennsylvania to annex the whole city.
