Police seized five guns over the weekend and also arrested a woman for beating her boyfriend and burning him with grease.

Officers were called about 7:50 p.m. Sunday to a 110 E. Wood St. apartment near downtown where the man told them he was in a heated argument with his girlfriend, Rene Allgood, 59, of West Warren Avenue, over allegations of his cheating.

Reports said the victim called Allgood a name and she hit him in the face with a frying pan, threw food she was cooking at him and threw the grease in the pan on him, which burned his neck.

Allgood faces a charge of felonious assault and was booked into the Mahoning County jail.

Reports said officers spotted Kenneth McGuire III walking about 1:10 a.m. Sunday in the southbound lanes near the Glenwood Avenue exit off Interstate 680 on the South Side carrying a red bag.

Reports said he smelled heavily of alcohol. Reports said officers found a conceal-carry permit on him and he admitted he had two guns. Police found a loaded 9 mm handgun and a loaded .380-caliber handgun, a spare magazine of ammunition and a bag of marijuana.

Police issued McGuire citations for having weapons while intoxicated and possession of marijuana, reports said.

About 10:15 p.m. Saturday, officers were called about 10:15 p.m. to a Tyrell Avenue apartment on the West Side for a report of a fight with gunfire. When they arrived, they found Kayan Muhammad, 19, running away. He was caught by police after he fell, reports said.

Muhammad was arrested on charges of possession of heroin and possession of cocaine after police found a bag of suspected heroin and suspected cocaine on him when he was searched. He also had a 9 mm round in his pockets, reports said.

Reports said police checked out a West Side apartment they were called to Friday for a fight where a man had a gun. Two women there said there was no fight there, but officers found nine spent shell casings on the patio. The woman gave police permission to search the apartment, and they found a loaded 9 mm pistol and a box of 9 mm ammunition, reports said.

On Friday, police pulled over Rodney McMeans, 23, about 8:20 p.m. on the South Side for an improper turn, and it looked like he was trying to hide something, reports said.

Reports said he had a bag of suspected marijuana in his hand and told police he had a gun in the glove compartment.

The car was searched after McMeans and two passengers, Robert Spragling, 22, and Jermaine Williams, 24, both of Youngstown, were taken out because it smelled heavily of marijuana.

Police found a 9 mm round on the floor and the magazine underneath a towel in the back seat.

McMeans was arrested on charges of improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle and possession of marijuana.

Spragling was cited for possession of marijuana after police found eight bags of suspected marijuana. He was jailed because he has two warrants from municipal court.

Police cited Williams for possession of marijuana, reports said.

Police also seized a gun after Gerald Wainwright, 25, was wounded after police said he fired several shots at them after they tried to talk to him about 2:30 a.m. Saturday at West Princeton and Hudson avenues on the South Side after he was spotted walking in the street and wearing a mask.

Police said Wainwright had a 9 mm pistol on him with the serial number burned off. He remains in critical condition at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital, reports said.
