Women say fake cop burst into home

YOUNGSTOWN — A pair of women in an Eddie Street home told police Wednesday someone kicked in their back door, claiming to be a cop, and ransacked their kitchen.

Police were called to the home about 8:50 p.m., where the women, who reports said were hysterical, said they heard a loud bang, then someone shout “Police! Get on the ground!’ before kicking in the door.

The women hid under a bed and told police the person who forced entry left after noticing there were three children in the home.

Nothing appeared to have been taken, reports said.
