Niles woman beaten Monday at convenience stores


A Niles woman, 35, said she was attacked at two adjacent convenient stores on Youngstown Road at 2:10 p.m. Monday, suffering injuries to her head and face from a baseball bat and from having her face smashed into a glass door that broke.

The victim said she was walking toward the Big Apple Supermarket, 1650 Youngstown Road, when a woman got out of a car and started to attack her. She was accompanied by a man with a gun.

The victim ran from that store and went next door to the Pit Stop gas station, 1708 Youngstown Road, but the two followed her there also.

The two took the victim’s purse containing $80 in cash and her phone and left in a black Chrysler 300.

The woman was taken to a hospital for treatment and had swelling and bruising on her face, back of her head and legs, police said.
