2 men robbed today near YSU campus

Published: Wed, July 2, 2014 @ 1:10 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Two men told police they were robbed at gunpoint about 12:50 a.m. today on the corner of Michigan Avenue and the West Bound Service Road on the North Side.

The men, a 22-year-old from Girard and a 24-year-old from Youngstown, told police they were returning from a bar when the two men, who they spotted earlier walking in the opposite direction, each pulled handguns and took their wallets and a cellphone belonging to one of the men. No one was injured, and the men fled away from the Youngstown State University campus.

St. Elizabeth Hospital police were involved in a brief foot pursuit with the suspects but lost them in the rear yards west of Belmont Avenue, YSU police said.

It's hard catching animals on foot. You have to shoot them.

I love that Knightcap has 666 comments with this article! I agree. Those YSU students shouldn't have to fear for their safety. I had friends who lived over there 20 years ago, and it was never that bad.
