Teen faces charge in robbery of 14-year-old boy on bike trail

WARREN

An 18-year-old Edgewood Street Northeast man is charged in the March 14 robbery on the Warren Greenway bike trail in which a 14-year-old boy was assaulted and had his cellphone and clothes stolen.

The charge against Marcus Lowery was bound over to a Trumbull County grand jury Thursday.

Lowery appeared in Warren Municipal Court for a separate arraignment and a pretrial hearing last week after his May 23 arrest. If convicted, he could get eight years in prison.

A Warren woman told police she was driving in the area of High Street and Charles Avenue Northeast when she saw the 14-year-old walking from the nearby bike trail onto the residential part of High Street near ValleyCare Trumbull Memorial Hospital with no clothes on, covering his privates with his hands.

“He was a little boy. He was stark naked. We were just shocked,” said the woman’s mother, who gave the boy a blanket during the 4:40 p.m. incident.

The boy gave police information to help identify at least two of the three males who attacked him, police said.

He told police he had been walking on the bike trail with the three males when they punched him in the face, kicked him and took his clothes, shoes and cellphone. He said he didn’t know why they did it.

The Warren section of the bike trail is part of the Western Reserve Greenway, a 43-mile, north–south course from Ashtabula to Warren.

Police said the boy, who lives on the west side, went to Trumbull Memorial for treatment. His mother said he suffered a concussion and bruises on his head and face.

Lowery was released last week from the Trumbull County jail after posting $10,000 bond.

Lt. Jeff Cole of the Warren Police Department said police are still investigating the incident and further charges are still possible against one other adult and one juvenile.

“There are a lot of unanswered questions and things we’re still looking into,” Cole said, adding that it’s still unclear why the suspects took the victim’s clothes.

Lowery also was convicted Thursday in Warren Municipal Court of misdemeanor domestic violence for assaulting his 18-year-old girlfriend March 16 and was placed on three years’ probation.
