Pair robbed near YSU

Published: Mon, September 9, 2013 @ 11:49 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Two men were robbed in the backyard of a North Side home in the 200 block of Alameda Avenue near Youngstown State University just after 1 a.m. today.

The men told police they walked out of the back door and found two men in the back yard dressed in all black clothing, with their faces covered and pointing guns at them. The pair took a wallet and an IPod from the residents, reports said.

The two men then ran away toward Fifth Avenue, reports said.

The area had seen similar robberies in late August but police had made no arrests in those cases.

Once again the Vindy has an opp to chastize Youngstown State. Near YSU? Last I checked Alameda Ave is closer to Gypsy Ln. and Liberty Twp as is to YSU. Granted the robbery off Illinois Ave near YSU in late August is similar. The fact that now you consider the the Crandall Park area is close to the University. Then every robbery from McGuffey Rd. to MLK Blvd. can be categorized near Youngstown State. Heck throw in Willamson Ave and Glenwood Ave to cover the south end of the University...
