Youngstown police arrest 2nd teen who may be linked to North Side robberies



Published: Thu, September 12, 2013 @ 7:12 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Police Chief Rod Foley said police are still looking for another suspect in a string of robberies on the North Side despite the arrest of a second suspect Wednesday.

Foley said a 16- or 17-year-old male, who he refused to name, was arrested about 5 p.m. at a home in the 200 block of Lora Avenue.

On Tuesday, police arrested Michael Curry, 17, at a home in the 200 block of Norwood Avenue. Both are in the Martin P. Joyce Juvenile Justice Center.

Police think the two are responsible for more than a half-dozen armed robberies on the North Side, with most of the victims students at Youngstown State University. Most of the robberies took place in late August but a pair of YSU students were robbed at gunpoint about 1 a.m. Monday in the backyard of a home on Alameda Avenue, which is several blocks from campus.

Foley said officers are still searching for at least one more person because in one of the robberies, a third person was involved.
