Man shovels walkway, pulls knife demanding more money

WARREN — A Dodge Street Northwest woman said a man threatened her with a knife and demanded additional money after she paid him $20 for shoveling her driveway Monday.

The woman said the man is small and "scruffy" and rides a bicycle. He had shoveled her driveway in the past.

She let him inside her house to pay him about 8 p.m., and he pulled out a knife and demanded all her money. She told him she didn't have any more and "he didn't want to do this because he would go to jail for a long time." He fled on foot, then rode his bicycle away, she said.

He did not get anything other than the $20, she said.
