Pair robbed near YSU


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.
