Guns missing


Police reported six guns were taken Wednesday from a home in the 500 block of West Ravenwood Avenue.

Officers were called to the South Side home about 10:45 p.m., where the home-owner told them he left at noon and when he came home the back door was kicked in.

Three of the guns were in a safe and the safe was taken.

Victim won’t talk


Reports said a 36-year-old man who checked himself in Thursday to St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital with a stab wound to the shoulder was not cooperative with police.

Police were called to the hospital about 1:40 a.m., where the man told officers he was arguing with his girlfriend after he was out all night drinking with his friends, and she accused him of cheating on her. She stabbed him, but the victim refused to tell police where the stabbing took place or her name.

It’s microchip number is 99 0000001347096. Anyone who sees the cat is asked to contact West Side Cats.
