City police find runaway teenager
City police have found a 15-year-old boy who ran away from his foster family about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday during a family outing.
Police said Deangelo Hogan was placed in foster care in January through Cuyahoga County Children and Family Services.
Hogan has allergies to bees and needed medication for ADHD and PTSD. He was only wearing swimming gear when he disappeared.
No other information was available Wednesday night.
A 21-year-old city woman reported being robbed of cash and keys as she returned to Warren from the strip club where she works in Lowellville early Wednesday.
The woman suffered scratches on her back in a 3:46 a.m. scuffle with three women in the 1300 block of Mahoning Avenue Northwest.
When police arrived, they found the woman's clothes spread out across the street. She was intoxicated and crying.
She said a man named "Big Pimpin" offered her a ride from the club to Warren. One of her co-workers was in the car along with two other females.
The driver stopped the car on Mahoning Avenue, and the females pulled her out and threw her stuff around, she said. They also took her bag before they left.
When officers attempted to drop her off at her home, she had a panic attack and had to be taken to the hospital.
