Beating over shoes


A 31-year-old East Midlothian Boulevard man was hospitalized early Friday after he was beaten by three men over a pair of shoes, reports say.

Police were called to the victim’s South Side apartment about 1:50 a.m., where the victim said he was beaten by three men, two he knows by the names of Duke and Poo, because a man they know claimed the victim kept a pair of the man’s shoes.

Reports said the victim had two black eyes and a broken nose and had blood covering his face. He was taken to St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital for treatment.
