Police arrest 17-year-old in North Side robberies

YOUNGSTOWN

Detectives have arrested a 17-year-old male in connection with a series of armed robberies on the North Side, some of them around the Youngstown State University campus.

A news release from the department said detectives served a search warrant at a home in the 200 block of Norwood Avenue earlier today and investigators found two handguns as well as drug paraphernalia and items that may be linked to the robberies, such as clothing, cell phones and a shell casing.

Detectives are searching for a second suspect. The name of the juvenile taken into custody this morning will be made available when he is formally charged, the release said.

The latest robbery was in the 200 block of Alameda Avenue early Monday morning, but a series of about a half dozen the last week of August in and around the campus had YSU and city police running extra patrols to try and catch them.
