Police arrest 17-year-old in North Side robberies


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.

YSU police are full-fledged law enforcement officers under ORC. There is a mutual aid agreement with YPD for the areas adjacent to the campus and especially north to Gypsy Lane. As stated, many students live in housing around the campus and this helps to protect them. The YSU campus is one of the safest in the state of Ohio, if not the nation, due to the diligence of campus police. My son worked for them while attending school in the escort service and had only good things to say about their operation. So, while the streets mentioned are not on campus, they are within their coverage area. But, hey, try to find a cloud in every silver lining.

Good job YPD! Just a matter a time before you catch the other thug. I know I will rest easier since I live in this area.

Punk ass kid should get 20 years and his drug addled momma 10 years in jail. These kind of people should be taken off the streets for long periods of time.
