East High student charged with assault


Police arrested an 18-year-old East High School student on an assault charge, saying he elbowed a police officer early Wednesday after he became upset when he was asked to walk through a metal detector without his backpack, reports said.

Reports said two city police officers working at the school were at the metal detector just before 8 a.m. when they asked Torrence Mosley of Sixth Street in Campbell to put his backpack down and walk through the metal detector without it.

Mosley first ignored the officers, and he was asked again to go through without the backpack, police said.

Mosley threw the backpack on a table and walked forward. When an officer tried to get in front of him, Mosley elbowed him in the chest and tried to walk away, reports said.

Both officers then grabbed Mosley and handcuffed him. He was booked into the Mahoning County jail and is expected to be arraigned in municipal court today.

Motorcycle crash victim identified


The Mahoning County Coroner’s Office on Thursday identified the victim of a fatal city motorcycle accident as Eileen Hahn, 47, of Warren.

The accident occurred just before 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Madison Avenue Expressway. A medical examiner with Cuyahoga County will conduct an autopsy.

Toxicology results are pending. The incident remains under investigation.

There was no available or updated information on a second person, a male, who was injured in the accident. He was taken to St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital.
